To our Amazing Parish,
You have a unique blend of talents and abilities that are perfectly suited to carry out whatever mission God has assigned to you on this earth. There are two types: universal and unique. Universal talents are those that we all have. For example, we all have the ability to make a difference in other people’s lives. Unique talents are those that everyone does not have. For example, the ability to paint like Van Gogh, write a symphony like Mozart, or be the best basketball player in the world.
The world is obsessed with unique talent, but when you consider the ability to make a difference in other people’s lives alongside the ability to throw a great fastball, the baseball thing seems trivial. The reason it seems trivial is because it is. The world takes the trivial and makes it important, and takes the important and makes it trivial.
God has given you a unique blend of talents and abilities, and your talents and abilities are vocational. What does that mean? Well, they hold clues about your mission, your genius, your vocation, and the best way for you to live….
Deep in your heart you have desires for good things, and God has placed those desires in your heart to guide you to the life he envisioned for you.
(Matthew Kelly, Decision Point)
God Bless you as you continue journeying!
