Your Unique Vocation and Calling

“Body and soul contain thousands of possibilities out of which you can build many identities.  But in only one of these will you find your true self that has been hidden in Christ from all eternity.  Only in one will you discover your unique vocation and deepest fulfillment. But as Dag Hammarskjold argues, you will never find this ‘until you have excluded all those superficial and fleeting possibilities of being and doing with which you toy out of curiosity or wonder or greed, and which hinder you from casting anchor in the experience of the mystery of life, and the consciousness of the talent entrusted to you which is your I.'”
