What is God calling you to do?
I would like to ask each one of you:
What will you do with your life?
What are your plans?
Have you ever thought of committing your existence totally to Christ?
Do you think that there can be anything greater than to bring Jesus to people and people to Jesus?
We wonder and ask, Why?
Why am I here?
Why am I alive at all?
What must I do?
None of you is alone in posing these questions.
In the first place I say this: you must never think that you are alone in deciding your future! And second: when deciding your future, you must not decide for yourself alone!
Do not be afraid of the radicalness of His demands, because Jesus, who loved us first, is prepared to give Himself to you, as well as asking of you. If He asks much from you, it is because He knows you can give much.
Sometimes, laymen and women do not seem to appreciate to the full the dignity and the vocation that is theirs as lay people. It is their specific vocation and mission to express the Gospel in their lives and thereby to insert the Gospel as a leaven into the world in which they live and work. Follow Christ! You who are young or old. Follow Christ! You who are sick or aging; you who feel…the need of a friend. Follow Christ!
-Pope John Paul II
