Roman Catholic an Eastern Orthodox Churches[edit]

The article should also mention the notion of calling in Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Churches, a term that is used to refer to priestly vocations. ADM (talk) 18:54, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

I think vocation, linked in the first line, covers that. Johnbod (talk) 21:07, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Protestant[edit]

Protestantism is a more prominent and general faith. It's more prominent and general use of "calling" should come first. --Carlaude (talk) 03:52, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
