Vocation Essay

How do priests, deacons, and other religious brothers and sisters help us to hear God’s call in our lives? Priests, deacons, and other religious brothers and sisters help us hear God’s call by teaching us the ministry and faith of God. They teach us about God so we can understand God and trust him more. With the help of our religious family we will be able to hear God’s call more easily. As Christians, it is our job to bring each other closer to God and His kindness. With the help and support of each other we will be able to hear God’s call as if He were right next to us telling us what to do. With the help of everyone, religious leader or not, we will be able to accept what God wants us to do even if is not exactly what we had in mind for our future.

Deacons help us get closer to God because if we get married we could go to them for advice for how to keep the marriage happy and close to God. They could give particular prayers to pray together to bring the married couple closer together. With the love that they will have they will probably be together for a long time and always work hard to keep the love strong.
Priests help us by giving us God through the bread and wine which are changed into the body and blood of Christ. They also give a safe haven to tell our sins and be forgiven. The priests are also considered God’s messengers. They tell us how we can open our hearts to God.

Nuns help us figure out what God wants us to do with our lives, if it’s being a religious leader like a priest or nun or just a loving married person. They also help us with our vocation to love and serve God. Nuns can make people more open to try to find God in their lives. With the help from the Catholic Church, our families and God we will be able to live the best life according to God’s will.
