Christmas and Vocations

Here it is. Everyone's favorite time of year. And I don't mean Christmas (weirdly enough). I mean Advent. The anticipation of Christmas.


Advent is one of the most stressful times of the year, because of all those dang presents we have to get for everyone. Presents for you, presents for you, presents for you... etc. But it's also a time of self-reflection, right? A time to really better yourself. Like, to really REALLY better yourself. And the best way to do that is to know who you are and where you're going, right?

The two most difficult questions for a high-schooler/young adult to answer: Who are you? And where are you going?

As we get closer to Christmas this first Sunday of Advent, start to really look into yourself (you I've been annoying you to do all year), and ask yourself the difficult questions. Are you being called toward something you almost don't want to be called toward? Are you listening to any kind of calling whatsoever? Are you doing the legwork? Really and truly: who are you, and where are you going?
