St. Bernardine of Siena

"Whenever the divine favor chooses someone to receive a special grace, or to accept a lofty vocation, God adorns the person chosen with all the gifts of the Spirit needed to fulfill the task at hand."

As I was in the midst of Lectio Divina this morning I came across this quote from St. Bernardine of Siena.  Being a vocation director for my Benedictine Community I felt compelled to pass this quote on to you.  Truly, God calls everyone to love and serve God.  That 
is our vocation.  God gives each of us the gifts and talents we need to build the Kingdom of God on earth.  We just have to trust and say, "YES!"
