The answer to every question, every concern and worry is found in Jesus Christ, the light of the world. It may not necessarily be the answer we are looking for, or what we want at that time, but Jesus is the source of all our answers and questions.
The feast of the Presentation of the Lord reminds us that Jesus is the light. Simeon and Anna (Luke 2:22-40) knew Jesus was the light of the world. Men who are discerning their vocation need to seriously look at the light of Christ to assist them to discern their vocation.
Perhaps our continuous prayer is that the Lord will enlighten our hearts, assist us to do His will, enable us to see with the eyes of faith and show us with clear light our vocation for life. We pray for the strength to pursue our calling with conviction.
Kind regards and God bless
