A Picture of Christian Vocation in Action

D-Day-Mass

On this anniversary of D-Day, I came across a picture of that day that illustrates the vocation of the Christian so very well.

The vocation of the Christian is 1) repenting and faithfully receiving forgiveness from Christ in Word and Sacrament, and 2) serving the neighbor in love through whatever other vocations the Lord has put us in.

After the landing and battle; after the soldiers have done their duty in serving their neighbor, they gather together and are served by our Lord Himself in His word of forgiveness preached and in His Body and Blood of forgiveness fed.

How amazing and merciful our Lord is!
