While his last season in the NFL (2013) was a down year for him, often used to discredit his chances of getting another shot at a position in which supply often seems to outpace demand, the reality is the offensive line was miserable, the entire offense stunk that year and Rice was dealing with a significant injury. “The year I had a down year, I didn’t come out of camp out of shape,” Rice said. “I got hurt. I was at my playing weight, so whatever was out there is total BS, lies. I tore a muscle off the bone … I’ve never showed up to training camp out of shape. You never had to worry about Ray Rice failing a conditioning test. To think that training is going to be a problem, that’s not it.” Rice was humbled and buttressed by the Ravens’ invitation to speak to their rookies during spring OTA practices, something owner Steve Bisciotti signed off on, and he got a chance to talk to coach John Harbaugh and general manager Ozzie Newsome while he was there as well. He has contemplated perhaps working for an NFL team in an official player development role one day, as the opportunity to help others learn from his mistakes and to urge players to get help for their problems or expand their education base is at the core of Rice’s being now. “I think a lot of people go through things in life and they’ve got to hide from their problems But I don’t have to hide anymore, and I feel a kind of freedom that …”Ray Rice “I have nothing but love for those guys,” Rice said of the Ravens’ brass.

The ‘Blue Lives Matter’ law officially goes into effect today and Louisiana is the first state to put this kind of law in place. The law makes it a hate crime to target police officers, firefighters and EMS personnel. Under the new law anyone convicted of committing a felony hate crime could face five years in prison or a maximum five thousand dollar fine. Traditionally, a crime is considered a hate crime if the victim is targeted because of identity-based characteristics such as their race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation. Louisiana becomes the first state to add one’s chosen vocation to that list and it hits home for the Shreveport Police Department. Last August, officer ThomasLavalley was shot and killed on duty after responding to a suspicious person call. His accused killer, GroverCannon is in jail awaiting trial.

Augustine I used the Vocation Match finder after encouragement from my local priest. When we talk about vocation, we introduce a vertical dimension in our life, which is God. And yet, whatever his profession or condition, man is not abandoned by Providence: “As the Lord has distributed to every one, as God bath called every one, so let him walk” 1 Corinthians 7:17 . Thank you, VISION! More specifically, in the Orthodox and Catholic Churches, this idea of vocation is especially associated with a divine call to service to the Church and humanity through particular vocational life commitments such as marriage to a particular person, consecration as a religious, ordination to priestly ministry in the Church and even a holy life as a single person. Gregory, EC. Rather it is the response to a call and to a call of love.
St. goshes graduates work at jobs; they have careers; but they also pursue a vocation. She moved away from the pulpit to demonstrate, stepping forward shyly… and then, after standing there looking puzzled, she moved another step forward to where the light had gone, two feet ahead of where she had been standing, and then again, awe in our faith work, she said, stumble along toward where we think were supposed to go, bumbling along, and here is whats so amazing we end up getting exactly where were supposed to be. The best decision-making tools we can offer young adults who are worried about their future are not career inventories, but the classic tools of Christian discernment: prayer, Scripture, obedience, reflection and the counsel of fellow believers. In Holy Scripture we read those general counsels of self-denial which all Christians are called upon to follow during their lives, while they are the object of a more complete application in a state which for that very reason may be called a state of perfection.
