Pop-Up Catechesis: Listening for God’s Call

Pop-Up Catechesis with Joe Paprocki

When St. Joan of Arc was on trial for heresy, the Inquisitor mocked her for claiming that she heard God’s voice speaking to her. He said, “It’s only your imagination!” Joan responded, “Of course! How else would God speak to me but through my imagination?” This story teaches us that we need to pay attention to how God is speaking to us through our thoughts, feelings, desires, hopes, dreams, imagination, and memories. Our vocation, or our calling from God, comes to us in a subtle language. In this episode of Pop-Up Catechesis, we explore the notion of discerning our vocation and listening for God’s call.
