Responding to the Call to Holiness
The National Office for Vocation is committed to promoting the Call (Vocation) to Holiness.
Our baptismal call to holiness – or to be in relationship with God – grows as we mature in faith in the grace of the Holy Spirit. God is closer to us than we can ever imagine, but we need to do our part by opening our mind, heart and will to God.
GodCalls: Adventure is a 40-day self-guided course which aims to help you in this work.
Why 40 days?
Jesus went into the desert for 40 days, and the Israelites spent 40 years in the desert. The desert is a place where everything becomes essential, distractions are few and far between, it gives a person the opportunity to delve into what is in their heart- it is a privileged time of adventure and discovery. This adventure into ourselves cannot happen overnight, it takes time, discipline, and patience. 40 days gives us time to learn new habits, practice new ways of being, and grow into a person a little more proficient in being our true selves as God dreams us to be.
