Sacraments at the Service of Communion

“Holy Orders and Matrimony belong to the Sacraments at the Service of Communion.  This means they are primarily directed toward the salvation of others.” (USCCA, p.262-3)

Helping a child learn to give the answer, “Whatever God wants me to be” to the question “What do you want to be when you grow up?” is perhaps the early seeds in helping them to discern their vocation, the desire to know God’s desire for them, for the service of others.

Referring to vocations we often think of the vocation to the priesthood, or perhaps religious life, but it is encouraging too to see this young couple recognize the vocation to marriage… After first seeking God’s desire with hearts ready to say yes as His answer unfolds.
