What do we mean by Vocation?

The word vocation means calling and the reality is that all of us have received a call. We have been called by God to be all that God wishes us to be. For some people that may mean becoming a priest or a religious. For others it means being married or being involved in serving the wider community. The reality is that the notion of vocation raises a whole host of issues tied up with our sense of identity.
