Summary

As we research the lives of Saints and Other Powerful Men and Women in the Church, we sometimes wonder if they were ever given a job description of what was expected of them in their positions, and if they had been given the opportunity to say “Aye” or “Nay”. Did they, and do we really have a choice to say “Aye” or “Nay” to the Lord when He calls us into Ministry? Our daughter has an expression which pretty well answers the question. She says “You can go kicking and screaming in the night, but when the Lord wants you to do something, He will have His way.” One other observation we’d like to leave you with on this subject is a quote from Mother Angelica, foundress of EWTN Global Television Network. When we were writing her biography for our book, Saints and Other Powerful Women in the Church, we asked the question. “Mother, aren’t you ever frightened when you make these multi-million dollar purchases with only $200 in the bank?” She answered: “There’s only one thing I fear, and that is on Judgment day if the Lord should say to me, ‘Angelica, I gave you a job to do and you didn’t do it.’ I could not bear disappointing the Lord. That’s what I fear.”
