A vocation is the call God has for each of us to make something of our lives. God calls each one of us without exception. A pilgrimage is a great time to reflect on what the Lord calls us to. To ask what is pleasing to him. Is it to be a father, a mother, a teacher, a doctor, a lawyer? Is it to be a priest or a sister, or a deacon? Most of us want to do what we want to do. But what we should want to do is what God wants us to do.
We ought to be astonished by this fact: when we praise God or give him thanks for his benefits in general, we are not particularly concerned whether or not our prayer is acceptable to him. On the other hand, we demand to see the results of our petitions. What is the image of God that motivates our prayer: an instrument to be used? or the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ?
My brothers and sisters, you must make room for silence in your lives! Make a time every day when you set yourself apart from the restlessness of your activities. Make a place in the silence of your hearts where Jesus can speak to you — and where you can listen and speak back to him. This will help you grow in your friendship with God.
