What is a Vocation – According to St. Thomas Aquinas

I’ve been thinking of late about what the Church means when it speaks about vocation. It seems to me it’s meaning would play an important foundational part to our obedience to God and life of peace and joy. I’ve decided to do a bit of reading and hopefully better my understanding of the subject. Journey with me if you like and offer up your own insights along the way.

I’ll start with a post that brings another element into play which is our state of life and discussion of vocations. So what is a vocation anyway?

“St. Thomas here speaks of vocation insofar as it is that whereby God leads us to grace and to love. Corresponding to this, we can also call grace and love a vocation, or say that we are called to grace and love, insofar as God leads us to it.”

Off and on there will be more posts on this topic so keep an eye out if you’re interested.
