Divine Summons: Working in the Horizon of God's Call

Meilaender, Gilbert. "Divine summons: working in the horizon of God's call," Christian Century 117, no. 30 November 2000: 1110-1114, 1116-1118.

Gilbert Meilaender explores the definition of “vocation” and what it means to be “called by God” and to “fulfill who we are.” Relying on the works of Aeneas and Augustine, Meilaender notes that God calls us not only to the good life but to himself-beyond earthly joy and responsibility. Meilaender also examines the work of Dante in the “Divine Comedy.” Meilaender suggests that our calling may be difficult and it may not be glamorous but the point is to stick to it because ultimately it is abiding with God.
