Looking for a sign?

A Resurrectionist Vocation Minute for May 12, Ascension of the Lord

Looking for a sign? 

People often try to look for “signs” when we are trying to discern what God’s will is for our lives.  But we often miss the biggest sign of all – ourselves.

A vocation is not a “job” God wants you to do, it is a “sign” God wants you to be.  God will give us “signs” along the way, but we should realize that they are all supposed to point to the kind of life God is inviting us to live, the way God wants us to be a sign to others of the good news.

“O Risen Lord, the way, the truth and the life, make us faithful followers of the spirit of your resurrection. Grant that we may be inwardly renewed; dying to ourselves in order that you may live in us. May our lives serve as signs of the transforming power of your love. Use us as your instruments for the renewal of society, bringing your life and love to all and leading them to your Church. This we ask of you, Lord Jesus, living and reigning with the Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God forever. Amen.”
