Ernst Burkhart:
On the theology of»vocation«
(FKTh 2018-4, p. 290–300)

The concept of »vocation« is presented in its biblical roots and historical development in view of the 2018 Synod of Bishops. The teaching on the universal call to holiness which had St. Josemaria as a forerunner reaches a culminating point in the Second Vatican Council. Vocational pastoral endeavors should aim to foster the search for holiness in the midst of society so as to create the necessary conditions for vocations at the service of the Church to flourish.
