An evening of vocation discovery
The missionaries of Pasig organized an evening of vocation discovery of the various states of life consisting of: consecrated missionary of the female and male branches, missionary married couple and Lay Consecrated missionary in Verbum Dei Fraternity. The event began with a short introduction of how Love is calling each one, as we are to be united and to dream. The dream of God is beyond our imagination, and we are invited to begin the journey to dream big with Him.
Jesus knocks on our doors (as in Revelation 3:20) and invites us to listen to Him. He desires to enter deeper into our hearts and our lives, to share a meal of intimate relationship with us. His call for each one is unique and special, no matter where we are on our journey of life - Love is calling us to follow Him.
Various missionaries gave their testimony on how they experience and understood their call, as well as how they are living out their mission in their specific reality.
Last but not least, we spent the final moments of the evening in silence with Jesus in the Eucharist, to stay with Him, to listen to Him calling out and knocking on our doors and sharing the moment with Him.
The following is a short experience of a youth from Pasig community from the session:
"Tonight I learned that everything takes risks and sacrifices. Risks that if you're not willing to take, nothing will come into fruition. Sacrifices in terms that you can't have everything. Everybody has to make a choice. I am deeply impressed and honored to have met such people like Gelo, Kuya LL and Ate Anne, as well as Ate Aida who took it upon themselves to grab that opportunity and take that risk. I am humbled by the fact that I can't even muster the courage to do so and yet they made it look so easy to make a decision that big seems so trivial. The thought of leaving something behind bothers me the most but then again, it's for God so I understand what they gave up. I guess my lesson for tonight to reflect on is to question what God really has planned for me. To find answers and look into myself for the solutions to my dilemma." From Michael (Youth of Pasig)
