Each of us has a unique mission in the Church.   God has a different call for each of us. Because each of us is unique, each of us has a mission which no one else can fulfill.  God will use all of us, and particularly what is unique in us, to bring this mission to fulfillment.  Our response must be like that of Isaiah: “Here I am, Lord…send me.”  “I’ll do it.  I’ll play my part.  I’ll speak to that neighbor, that coworker, that friend, that relative.  I’ll talk to my children about their call in life. I’ll keep my mouth shut and refuse to gossip or criticize my co-workers. I’ll pray every day. I’ll learn to listen patiently to those in need.  I’ll do it!!
