I need to come up with my mission statement/goals for life over the Christmas holiday. In the future I think it will help to make life decisions…say some prayers for me! Who am I? What is it that God is calling me to do with my life? What is my role as a “link the chain between persons” as Cardinal Newman so aptly put it?
God has created me to do Him some definite service. He has committed some work to me which He has not committed to another. I have my mission. I may never know it in this life but I shall be told it in the next. I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons. He has not created me for naught. I shall do good – I shall do His work. I shall be an angel of peace, a preacher of truth in my own place, while not intending it, if I do but keep His commandments. Therefore I will trust Him. (John Henry Cardinal Newman)
