God wants us to be in relationship with Him.  He calls us and invites, but does not force us to be His disciples.  He chooses us for holiness, but will not force us to be holy, we must choose to live a life of holiness cooperating with His grace.  Once we are built up in loving relationship with Christ, He sends us to draw others to be in relationship with Him too.  God called me to be a priest, but I was a Nuclear Engineer first.  Listen to my homily and get a glimpse of my transition into the priesthood!
