Called: What Happens After Saying Yes to God
While the trappings of a professed Franciscan’s life may be different from that of a layperson, the inspiration and foundation are exactly the same: We are disciples of Christ called to live the Gospel in our world. Casey may wear brown while you wear red; he may work at a Church while you work in a school; and he may profess vows of poverty, chastity and obedience while you have yet to make any formal commitments in your life. The expressions may be different, but the life is the same.
Based on a series of contagiously enthusiastic blog posts Casey wrote while he was in formation, Called: What Happens After Saying Yes to God reflects on realities that are common to anyone who is serious about living a sincere Christian life and trying to follow the message of Jesus in the Gospels.
- All Christians must discern God’s call for them.
- All Christians struggle at times knowing how to pray.
- All Christians work to be in intimate relationships with others.
- All Christians are challenged to give of themselves so to rely more on God.
- All Christians have a mission of building up the kingdom.
- And all Christians, like it or not, fail along the way.

I have enjoyed Friar Casey videos and when I found that a book he authored was being offered I immediately ordered the book. Friar Casey is a very skilled writer. He simplified, for me, that answering God's call is easy and that we all have a place in serving God's will.
By reading I found the answer I needed just at the right time! 😊
It is a work that starts from the experiences in the discernment stage of a Franciscan friar. How to deepen the Franciscan knowledge to explain with words and emotions that represents St Fracis in his life. He also elaborates simply but with depth how to bring Franciscanism to others based on love. He simply explains how his training was and how he explains others with love his decision to become a friar.
