Marriage as a Vocation

July 27, 2010

“Marriage is a vocation. It is a task to which you are called.

If it is a task, it means you work at it.

It is not something which happens.

You hear the call, you answer, you accept the task,

you enter into it willingly and eagerly,

you commit yourself to its disciplines and responsibilities and limitations and privileges and joys.

You concentrate on it, giving yourself to it day after day in a lifelong Yes.”

–Elisabeth Elliot, Let Me Be a Woman
