Vocation 

From the Latin vocare, "to call," vocation is the "calling" one infers from the external and internal signs which evolve over time. Vocation may involve a task or job, but it also concerns a way of life. All Christian vocations-lay or ordained, single or married or religious-are specific expressions of Christian identity rooted in the baptismal covenant.
