Rebecca Sweeney Poems
Rebecca Sweeney Quotes
When I was in high school I thought a vocation was a particular calling. Here's a voice: "Come, follow me." My idea of a calling now is not: "Come." It's like what I'm doing right now, not what I'm going to be. Life is a calling.
Rebecca Sweeney (b. 1938), U.S. ex-nun. As quoted in Working, book 9, by Studs Terkel (1973). Thirty-five years old and unmarried, Sweeney had held a variety of jobs, including six years as a nun.
