The point is, retirement gives us time to be as busy or busier than we were when we were working. Second, especially for those who are glad to put their work behind them, some of us may see retirement as a long vacation. The media tend to present retirement as years of physically active, fun, healthy independence. For some, it is, and not only those who can arrange to retire early and move to where they love to play. This vision sees the retirement years as my time to be filled with the things that give me pleasure and satisfaction, whether outdoor or indoor, active or sedentary. Like social security, I paid my dues to the system, now its my turn to get it back and enjoy. Some others in vacation mode may be plain exhausted. When my father-in-law was a minister in rural Abbeville County, he asked an old farmer, Mr. Fleming, what are you going to do when you retire? Well, Preacher, Im going to sit in this here rocking chair for three days. On the third day Im going to start rocking just a little bit. Third, there is a vision of the retirement years that might be called disengagement, or the contemplative model. If young and middle adulthood are times to build a career, invest in family life and exercise leadership in the community all responsibilities that ask us to apply our energies to the outer world now, older adulthood is the time to disengage from some of those outward involvements and let our energies enrich the inner world, the spiritual life.

You don’t need to believe in God to choose a career or a profession. To become a priest, you need to feel that you have been “called” to the ministry directly by God. but rather ‘What does God want me to be?” Lay consecrated are people who consecrate themselves to God through promises of poverty, chastity and obedience, while still remaining lay people. Drawing on Aristotle, Ryken suggests that that the moral ideal is the golden mean between the two extremes of being lazy and being a workaholic. 10 Some Christian theologians also draw on the doctrine of redemption to discuss the concept of work. Some religious priests serve in parishes, but the majority have more specialized apostolates, such as education, retreats, communications, etc. Those who belong to a religious order not only follow the evangelical counsels for themselves, but are accepted by the Church, more or less officially, to represent in religious society the practice of the rules of perfection; and to offer it to God as a part of public worship. If young adults want a vocation and not just a job or career, what kind of college education will help them on this journey? Read questions on the minds of those discerning a vocation. The question an ordinary of a diocese or superior of a religious community should meet is: Considering the general interest of the order or the diocese, is it right that I should accept this or that candidate?
Two points have been made the subjects of controversy in the consideration of vocation to the ecclesiastical state : how does Divine Providence make its decrees known to men? Alphonsus : that God determines for every man his state of life On the choice of a state of life. We are not alone on this journey; Jesus gives us the Holy Spirit to guide us on the way to read the “signs” that point us in the right direction. But the offers of Divine Providence are several or even many, though one may be more pressing than the other; and since every good action is performed by the help of a supernatural grace which precedes and accompanies it, and since with an efficacious grace we would have done the good we have failed to accomplish, we may say, of every good that we do, that we had the vocation to do it, and of every good that we omit, either that we had not the vocation to do it, or, if we were wrong in omitting to do it, that we paid no heed to the vocation. In the broader sense, Christian vocation includes the use of one’s gifts in their profession, family life, church and civic commitments for the sake of the greater common good. CXAIII alias XI to Ageruchia; “De monogamia”; “Against Jovinian”, I; On St. She now sees her vocation as connecting music, God and healing in students lives. Job, career, vocation: The difference is in the calling How many times, whether chatting with a fellow plane passenger or meeting a church visitor, have you asked, so what do you do? When we encourage young people to think about their future, we too often limit their vision to a specific career.
