Next October, the Fifteenth Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops will meet to debate the theme of younger people and particularly the relationship between young folks, religion and vocation. There we will have an opportunity to contemplate more deeply how, on the centre of our life, is the call to joy that God addresses to us and the way this is God’s plan for men and women in every age” (SYNOD OF BISHOPS, XV ORDINARY GENERAL ASSEMBLY, Young People, The Faith and Vocational Discernment, Introduction).
Thus we come to find that Christian vocation always has a prophetic dimension. The Scriptures inform us that the prophets had been sent to the people in situations of nice materials insecurity and of religious and moral disaster, to be able to tackle in God’s name a message of conversion, hope and consolation. Like a whirlwind, the prophet unsettles the false tranquility of consciences that have forgotten the word of the Lord. He discerns events in the gentle of God’s promise and enables people to glimpse the indicators of dawn amid the dark shadows of historical past.
A career or a career is something that you’ve to be able to help your self and to contribute not directly to the nice of the society.

A profession or a profession all the time has a horizontal dimension.
Among those concerned in pastoral exercise, monks are especially important. In their ministry, they fulfil the words of Jesus, who said: I am the gate of the sheepfold … I am the great shepherd” (Jn 10: 7, 11). The pastoral care of vocations is a elementary part of their ministry. Priests accompany those who are discerning a vocation, as well as those that have already dedicated their lives to the service of God and of the neighborhood.
Jonah, like Buffy, realized of what he was being called to do, and he ran, similar to Buffy in Prophecy Girl. She declares to Giles and Angel that she quits, and that is truly what she intends to do. In the following scene she is in her room when her mother is available in sensing one thing’s up (as mom typically do). Buffy, after brief small speak, asks her mom if they’ll go away – wherever, proper now. Buffy wants to run – to deny her vocation – because it appears onerous. She just would not want to do it!
