What does it mean to be chosen by God?

A Resurrectionist Vocation Minute for May 5, 6th Sunday of Easter

What does it mean to be chosen by God? 

“You did not choose me, but I chose you”.

A vocation is not merely a personal choice or career path – it is an invitation from God. A true vocation is not just about what we decide to pursue; it’s about responding to a call that originates outside of our own desires or plans. It is a deep realization that God has appointed us to “go and bear fruit, fruit that will last”.

If you’re discerning whether God is calling you to a religious life, why not join us for a Come and See Day?

“Coming to us and accepting us as brothers, you know what you should bring with you. Love is the law that is to govern our lives. Bring this with you. Our purpose here on earth is to become one heart and one spirit in Christ – what he asked his Father to give us: ut sint consummati in unum [that they may all be one]. This is what we require of you”.
