IF WE GIVE what we are to God and enter that divine relationship, no vocation is by definition holier than another. We do not need to become ministers or missionaries unless that is our specific guidance. One of the holiest men I ever knew was a microbiologist. One of the holiest women I ever knew was a librarian. If we belong to God, whatever our vocation, God will shine through us.
