Vocation Advice from St. Paul of the Cross

--"With regard to your vocation, wait on the loving breath of the Holy Spirit and live entirely abandoned in the divine arms of Jesus Christ, who is mindful of the state in life you should embrace.  Be sure that if you are faithful to God, he will open a wonderful path so that you may find a place apt to lead to the highest perfection.  But for now take care of yourself as best you can in your home, where you have occasions to exercise great acts of virtue at every hour and every moment . . . Keep silent, never complain, do not justify yourself ever, and never harbor resentment. --from a letter of St. Paul of Cross to Teresa Palozzi, December 7, 1755
