Our faith tells us that before God we are precious, unique and irreplaceable. It flows from this that God has a unique plan or calling for our lives. Today I read this related meditation from Pope Benedict XVI:

“Mary received her vocation from the lips of an angel. The Angel does not enter our room visibly, but the Lord has a plan for each of us, he calls each one of us by name. Our task is to learn how to listen, to perceive his call, to be courageous and faithful in following him. And when all is said and done, may we be found trustworthy servants who have used well the gifts given us.”
