“God has created me to do him some definite service;

he has committed some work to me that 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 have a part in a great work;

I am a link in a chain,

a bond of connection between persons.”

Cardinal John Henry Newman

Have you ever wondered what your purpose in life is? I’d have to say that sometimes in my life my purpose seems so clear.  And at other times, I feel like I have no purpose at all.  I am lost in this world. Cardinal Newman reminds us all that God has entrusted us with a particular purpose, a particular mission.  Maybe when we aren’t feeling real valued, or we are feeling down about ourselves, or our world is turned upside down, we should pull this quote out and read it again and again.  We each have an important role to play in God’s Kingdom.  Each one of us is priceless to God’s plan.  No matter how much we think we have screwed up or how far we have fallen from God, we still have a valued place in this world!  Let’s all pray that we my know the purpose God has in mind for us!  May we all know the value of each moment of our lives to our God.
