A vocation is a ‘calling’ from God, unique to each person - no two vocations are the same. A vocation is something particular that God is asking us to do with and in our lives and which only we can fulfil.
Cardinal Newman put it this way:
“God has created me to do him some definite service; He has committed some work to me which He has not committed to another”
HAVE YOU THOUGHT THAT GOD MIGHT BE CALLING YOU?
