As lay people they remain “in the world” and often exercise careers while giving a priority in their lives to prayer, witness and service. Though theoretically free, the choice of a state was practically necessary : “Those who are not called”, says Scavini Theo. moral., 14th ed., I, i, n. 473, “cannot enter the religious state: those who are called must enter it; or what would be the use of the call?” Sense of “one’s occupation or profession” is first attested 1550s. Matthew, fix, Fi P.G., XXXV, 634; XXXVI, 298; St. That is why if you are considering religious life it is necessary to get to know particular communities. Each vocation is a call to follow Christ closely.
The question an ordinary of a diocese or superior of a religious community should meet is: Considering the general interest of the order or the diocese, is it right that I should accept this or that candidate? Christian theologians see the Fall of man profoundly affecting human work.

There is nothing wrong with planning a career, but God usually has deeper and larger plans than we can imagine. A vocation is not something that you can switch like a profession or a career.
Its plain to see that mandatory writing education at Penn barely broaches the esprit vivant that is the proficient command of language. Other experts agree: Modest instruction yields modest results. The writing improvements seen in STEM freshmen taking a single writing seminar are small and mostly gone by the time they graduate. A longitudinal study indicates that, of 2300 students at 24 universities, one-third of all students show minimal improvement in writing and critical thinking skills by graduation. College students, including those at Ivy League universities, are also showing a decreased appreciation for the humanities over time. Today, record-high numbers of students support the opinion that the humanities are not at all important to them. This is an unacceptable trend. While I appreciate the efforts of Valerie Ross and the Critical Writing Program, especially the recent updates to the writing seminar, I believe they are insufficient to meet the needs of most students. I propose a new system of mandatory writing initiatives: four semesters of progressive linguistic study that will revive students passion for literature and improve their writing. To make room, the current scheme of arbitrary sector and foundational requirements should be replaced with a new one. The seminars will focus on the fact that good writing is learned by example.
