vocationsnewVocation is usually associated with the call to religious life or priesthood.  But everyone by virtue of baptism, says St. John Eudes, is called to a life of holiness. Everyone is called by God to be active players in the covenant sealed by the blood of Christ.


 

* SAL: (Society of Apostolic Life) 

St. John Eudes founded a congregation that is both apostolic and fraternal.  He wanted his priests to be holy because of their priesthood.  Therefore, he did not give us vows beyond the promises of the ordinary priest.  However, he wanted us to live in a community that supports our charism and mission.  In today’s Church this is referred to as a Society of Apostolic Life.
