Monday's Show--Taylor Morgan on Vocations, and The Revenge of Elston Turner

  On the show today, guest Taylor Morgan from the Vocations Office of the diocese is on to talk about National Vocations Awareness Week. For those unfamiliar with the term "vocation," here are some helpful insights from the Vocations Office website,
  • The first vocation of every baptized person is to become a saint. While that may seem daunting, the good news is that this vocation does not require any discernment. The Church and Sacred Scripture both tell us clearly and definitively that holiness is everyone’s primary vocation.” 
  • The secondary [or particular] vocation refers to the particular state of life in which we are called to fulfill our primary vocation to holiness. This particular vocation normally will have the following characteristics:
    • It has been pre-determined or pre-destined by God
    • It involves permanent commitment
    • It involves sacrificing oneself to serve God and others
    • It is recognized by the Church as a vocation
    • Its purpose is to help others get to heaven.
    Other topics include a run down of the sports weekend (including why Jim Harbaugh looks like a genius and why Elston Turner proves payback is a dish best served cold), and why Tony Campolo's vision is woefully misguded.
