Food For The Soul (Sunday, October 24, 2021)

“Every Christian has a vocation. We are called to share in the ministry of Jesus Christ in and through the world. In the Sacrament of Baptism this call is incarnated, giving us both a clear identity in the world and a sense of purpose about what our lives are ultimately for. Sharing in the ministry of Jesus Christ involves living in the world as an expression of the holiness we see in him – a holiness expressed through his compassion, his concern for justice (righteousness), and through his healing and reconciling presence in the world. The relationship he offers to us – when entered into with seriousness results in those qualities we see in him being expressed through us, sometimes even despite ourselves. We cannot, therefore, limit this expression to a particular profession or a particular role or a particular job.”

Invitation to Holiness (James C. Fenhagen)
