The August 2014 issue of Theologika Digest takes the theme of vocation as a sacred calling from God, a “worthy dream”, as its focus. The vocations of hospital chaplain, consecrated member of a religious community, student of arts and sciences, composer, and prophet of social justice are offered as examples of this divine call. The invitation to enter into the divine mystery through liturgy and the identification of one’s sacred calling to pursue a “worthy dream” are also explored.Read More

of the active presence of God
in everyday life.
I must not be the dry, bloodless reproduction of a model, however perfect. God desires us to follow the examples of the saints by absorbing the vital sap of their virtues and turning it into our own life-blood, adapting it to our own individual capacities and particular circumstances.
Angelo Roncalli, Pope St. John XXXIII
Journal of a Soul, 1903
The Catholic writer . . . will feel life from the standpoint of the central Christian mystery: that it has, for all its horror, been found by God to be worth dying for.
Everything is grace, everything is the direct effect of our Father's love. Everything is grace because -- everything is God's gift. Whatever be the character of life or its unexpected events -- to the heart that loves, all is well.
Thérèse of Lisieux
You say grace before meals? All right, but, I say grace before the play and the opera and grace before the concert and the pantomime, and grace before I open a book and grace before sketching, painting, swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing, and grace before I dip the pen in the ink.
G. K. Chesterton
"I won't take no for an answer," God began to say to me when He opened His arms each night wanting us to dance.
St. Catherine of Siena
Our call to service is not a call to submissiveness. It is a call to thunderous faith, born of deep passion that compels us to offer our entire selves for the sake of the world.
