We all are called by Heaven, but how many of us hear it? How many answer the call? What help do we receive in order to answer the call and fulfill the call?
In this podcast, Deacon Rusty Baldwin, OCDS, examines the “call.” Here, he specifically addresses the call to Carmel as indicated in the “Promise” made by members. The content of this talk, however, pertains to every call from Heaven.
With great clarity, Deacon Baldwin, lays out how the call may come. Additionally, he addresses the correlation of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit with the Theological and Cardinal Virtues.
May God grant us the grace to favorably answer His Call.
