It is a wonderful thing to be free to practise one’s Catholic faith; free to love, free to be generous and also free not to hate. “Eye for eye and tooth for tooth.” (Matthew 5:38-48, Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time)
Men who are discerning their vocation need to be totally free to discover their calling. Sin, other people and temptations are all causes for not being totally free to choose one’s vocation for life.
Let us pray for the freedom to be Catholic and discern our vocation with total freedom.
Kind regards and God bless
