“At last I have found my vocation, my vocation is Love!… In the heart of the Church, I will be Love!”
Is this discovery of St. Thérèse simply the common vocation of all of us, or has St. Thérèse found her own special vocation? Or are both true? Is it both her special vocation and the common vocation of us all? This essay on the words “My Vocation is Love” argues that it is both: the special vocation of St. Thérèse consists in giving herself entirely to that which is our common vocation–to live in love.
