St James the Greater: Drinking the Chalice of Our Vocation

Friday, July 26, 2013

Jesus asked James and John: "Do you know what you are asking? Can you drink the chalice that I am going to drink? (Mark 10:38)" The "chalice" is the sum of the trials and tribulations we will face in our vocation. Drinking of the chalice requires Faith, trust in God, courage, and -- perhaps most importantly -- perseverence; in drinking of this chalice we accept God's Will for us and if we persevere we will find our salvation.
