A call is never an escape, but rather a “going beyond,” a “launching out.”
It is accompanied by a mission to be carried out in the name of Christ.
The call of God can be heard in many ways. This can be in a sudden manner as for St Paul, but most often by a series of concrete calls which I discover in prayer, through an encounter, an event that upsets me, a testimony …
Something happens in me, then within me a question: “Why not me?” even if I defend myself, even if I feel some resistance. Bible stories give us many examples, Jesus joins a person there where they are, in what they are living, to propose that they go further.
