A vocation is a calling from God. So, in general terms, a personal vocation is what God calls you to do with your life.All vocations bring us to a fuller realization of the great commandments, to love the Lord our God, and to love our neighbor. Some are called to serve as priests or religious, some to marriage and family life. Discovering and ultimately following your vocation gives the greatest glory and praise to God. Whatever your vocation, you can find some guidance toward it here.
