Spirit of St. Vincent

“We cannot truly be disciples of Christ unless we, too, wait to hear God’s call and respond by
transforming our lives, evidenced in the simple willingness to be obedient to God’s will. This means
more than keeping the commandments, it means that our whole lives are directed to waiting and
listening for God’s self-revelation. Sometimes this revelation comes through others—perhaps in their cry
for help. Sometimes the revelation comes through prayer in which we take some time to listen to God.
However, when the revelation or call comes, if we respond, we will be transformed. And Jesus will turn
and ask us, ‘What are you looking for?’ “ (Living Liturgy, p.42)
