Men’s Real Vocations Are Not Their Careers

I’m still working on the 5th and final part of the Lenten quote series, but I just had to link this piece by Jennifer Fulwiler. I think it’s great to pursue big career dreams and goals, but when a man lies on his deathbed, I don’t think any real man has ever, or will ever say, “I wish I spent less time with my wife and kids.” Or, “I wish I spent more time slaving away at the office.” Or for parish priests, “I wish I spent less time saying Mass, administering the Sacraments, and teaching the faith and more time balancing parish budgets and doing administrative work for the parish.” Our careers are a part of who we are, but they can never define the entirety of our identities.

Memento Mori = perspective 🙂
