The.uestion an ordinary of a diocese or superior of a religious community should meet is: Considering the general interest of the order or the diocese, is it right that I should accept this or that candidate? Gregory, EC. Example Sentences for vocationn Often had he professed his readiness to prove his vocation by fire. We agree with Liguori when he declares that whoever, being free from impediment and actuated by a right intention, is received by the superior is called to the religious life . From the beginnings of the Church there have been those who felt the call to consecrate themselves exclusively to Christ in a private manner. It remains therefore for the man who has laid himself under such an obligation to accommodate himself to the state in which God, Who will give him the help of His grace, now wishes him to persevere. The Bishop has been placed by Christ as the head of that diocese, and the diocesan priest serves in obedience to and collaboration with him, serving mostly in parishes. The word vocation derives from the Latin vocare “to call.” But the offers of Divine Providence are several or even many, though one may be more pressing than the other; and since every good action is performed by the help of a supernatural grace which precedes and accompanies it, and since with an efficacious grace we would have done the good we have failed to accomplish, we may say, of every good that we do, that we had the vocation to do it, and of every good that we omit, either that we had not the vocation to do it, or, if we were wrong in omitting to do it, that we paid no heed to the vocation. There were also complex distinctions between internal and external, and the “vocatio efficax” and “inefficax” types of callings. 6 Hyper-Calvinism, unusually, rejects the idea of a “universal call”, a vocation, to repent and believe, held by virtually all other Christian groups.
In its less careful incarnations, as Buffy demonstrates admirably, third-wave feminism can perform the very strategies of occlusion and erasure that its aiming to redress. Buffys racial politics are more conservative than the shows gender or sexual politics, a situation summarized by one of the few black characters to recur in the shows first three seasons, Mr Trick, who says, Sunnydale  admittedly not a haven for the brothers strictly the Caucasian persuasion in the Dale. But the contradictions embedded in Buffys cultural politics are indicative of the crosscurrents that distinguish the third wave of feminism. The refusal of misogynist violence, the battle against institutionalized patriarchy, and the potential of feminist activism are issues that remain at the forefront of the third-wave agenda, and are themes that Buffys final season explores with characteristically challenging and satisfying complexity. The fact that its success in critiquing its own cultural privilege is equivocal should be read less as a straightforward sign of failure than a reflection of the contradictions that characterize third-wave feminism itself. In its examination of individual and collective empowerment, its ambiguous politics of racial representation and its willing embrace of contradiction, Buffy is a quintessentially third-wave cultural production. Providing a fantastic resolutionin both senses of the wordto some of the many dilemmas confronting third-wave feminists today, Buffy is comfort food for girls who like to have their cake and eat it too. Conor Friedersdorf The father of a fallen U.S. soldier is drawing attention to the fact that the Republican leadership cares more about partisan victory than repudiating prejudice. When Khizr Khan took the stage last week at the Democratic National Convention, proudly standing before a portrait of his Muslim American son, who died while fighting in Iraq for the U.S., he removed a pocket Constitution from his jacket, thrust it toward the camera, and demanded to know if Donald Trump, a proponent of laws that violate the document, had ever bothered to read its articles. The crowd in Philadelphia erupted.

Think Positive! Job Hunting Strategies To Help You Find Success
It’s not very pleasing usually when you’re looking for work, whether you were aware of becoming unemployed or not. However, this is an opportunity to get a job that you find much more fulfilling than your old one. Read on for some ideas here on how you can take advantage of the chance to get a great new job.
It is vital to dress the part when you are job hunting. Your appearance and attire say a lot about who you are as an individual. You need not overdo it all the time, but dress properly even when you are merely dropping off applications and resumes.
You should continue to do good work at your current job while seeking a new job. This does not give you the option to slack off at your current job. Your potential employers could hear about it as well. Success depends on your ability to work to your full potential.
Take advantage of all the resources LinkedIn has to offer. The Q&A section of a company website is a great place to help you show off your expertise. You may also use this section to inquire to other users about different jobs, and experiences.
Offering extra perks can help recruit strong candidates. Many of the top companies nationwide provide gyms, saunas, and even micro-restaurants in their building. People will be excited to work in such places, causing competition to grow. This will give you a greater pool of potential candidates to select from.
Stay positive and realistic. Look for a job constantly, and don’t get too discouraged. Unemployment is a stopgap not a permanent solution, so don’t count on it. Rather, try setting goals for the number of applications you do.
Set up an email address that sounds professional. Contact information is going to be the initial thing the employer sees on a resume. Pick a simple address that at least has your last name in it. Do not let employers dismiss your applications because of an unprofessional email address.
It is important that you answer the phone in a professional and friendly manner. You’ll find that you impress those who call you enough that they become interested in hiring you.
Think about giving out your cell number when you’re doing your applications instead of the land line at your home. This way, you won’t miss an important phone call asking you to an interview when you’re at the grocery store or walking around the block. You can always take your personal cell phone along with you everywhere you go.
Always communicate with your superiors. Many issues in the workplace can be traced back to poor communication, eroding trust. Instead, report in more often than the normal amount. Supervisors appreciate this quality because it allows you to seek valuable feedback, which leads to improved performance.
If money is a serious concern while you are searching for the perfect new job, look outside your field for opportunities that might be easier to find. This way you can keep yourself afloat as you keep up the search for the right job. Tending bar or waiting tables might be an option for you to help you get by.
Make sure your workplace knows your set work hours. A lot of workplaces enjoy consistency. When they’re able to expect good things from you, you’ll be on their good side. Therefore, be very specific with your work hours and break times. If you need to adjust, communicate with your boss as soon as you know.
Your job search may be just the first step in having a long career in the field you enjoy. Waking up to a job that you love to do is an experience that everyone should eventually achieve. Relax and go out there and get that job you want.
This process renewal initiative will substantially improve Marlin’s productivity with a corresponding improvement in the Company’s operating efficiency and its return on equity. Given that the value proposition for any small-ticket business is speed, consistency and convenience, improving the speed and consistency of Marlin’s operating system will reduce Marlin’s unit processing costs and allow us to better meet its customer’s requirements. This is a unique dynamic in small-ticket businesses where reducing processing costs will actually enhance the value proposition. This virtuous self-reinforcing cycle can have a powerful impact on both the financial performance and competitiveness of a high volume processing business like Marlin’s; that is why we place such a high priority on this initiative. In summary, Marlin is a great Company and I’m excited to be leading the team and the organization into the next phase of growth. I’m confident that based on the team we have in place and the initiatives and efforts underway, we will emerge a stronger more vibrant growth Company. I look forward to executing on our strategy, enhancing our financial and operational performance and driving superior value for all of our stakeholders in the quarters and years ahead. Now, I’d like to turn the call over to Ed Siciliano, our COO to discuss our second quarter operational performance in more detail. Ed?
