Focusing on Your Primary Vocation — Integrated Catholic Life™

Archbishop Jerome Lloyd OSJVPosted by

Last week, I began sharing my top three life priorities that keep me focused on living a meaningful, Christ-centered life.

Remember, so often we tend to make things more complicated than they really are.  When it comes to priorities, many of us have a check list of some kind that includes everything from going to the grocery store for milk to making sure our children get a great education.  We confuse mundane tasks with what is truly important in life.  If everything is important, then nothing is important. When it comes to living a fuller, richer life filled with meaning, what are your priorities?

What is truly important? What does Christ wants you to do?  

The more I try to discern the Lord’s plan, the more apparent it is becoming that I have just three simple priorities:

  1. I will serve Christ and love Him with all my heart.
  2. My family is my primary vocation.
  3. My workplace is also my ministry.

Last week, we looked at what it means to serve Christ. This week, let’s look at family.
