A Worthy Calling...
What is it that you desire in this world? Happiness right? We all want to be happy whatever it is we are doing. Whether it be going to college, choosing your future spouse, working those graveyard shifts, or even being the person that you are. This week I realized that happiness is not just a word, its your future. I have been discerning for quite some time now on going to the seminary to become a priest and its not an easy decision, but its not a hard one either. Where will I be the happiest, is the question I ask myself daily. Okay, that's an easy question. I am happiest with God and his presence of peace and joy. So instead of ending my childhood peace and joy with the things of this world I would rather live in unity with God and the church. God has a chosen vocation for everybody, its only our job to seek deep within our hearts and ask God to reveal it to us. remember, a Happy calling is a Worthy Calling.
My name is Br. Vincent Mary Carrasco, my friends call me Vinny. I graduated with a Bachelors in Theology and currently in my first year of temporary vows in formation with the Capuchin Franciscan province of Mid-America studying at St. John Vianney Seminary. I enjoy blogging and bringing out the greater message and bigger picture in life. I have always had a passion for helping those people who have no one to help them. One of my favorite things is seeing someone joyful and happy because of the work or joy that we bring. In my experiences, I give catholic insight, prayers, reflections and thinking that help me grow in my own faith. I hope you enjoy it.
