PODCAST | Called to Create

[ Podcast Transcript ]

In a society focused on external success and recognition, do we take time to look within and reflect: What do I love? Where am I going? How will I change the world?

In this podcast, Fr. Leo Agustina shares a reflection on discovering the beauty of creation within our ordinary circumstances – our work, our interactions, our home – and how, by welcoming God into our midst, we can participate in his work of creation and transform the world around us.

Fr. Leo explains: “Whatever is in [our] hands can be transformed, molded, into a masterpiece for [God]. It is up to [us] to discover the divine pearl in ordinary situations.” By contemplating our identity as a child of God, we come to a deeper understanding that our life is not defined by the label society may give us nor is it defined by our individual skill set – it’s about the love and interest we put into our vocation, for it is there that a miracle can occur.
