Vocation: Joyful Journey to Heaven

I am in the midst of a book that is not just for those well entrenched in the consecrated life, but for any young man or woman still struggling to figure out his her own vocation.

Part of the book encourages us to initiate a conversation with Jesus. Ask Jesus a simple question, "What do you want me to do?" And wait for the response. His answer may be simple, "I want you to be with me."

"60 Minutes" cameras capture the monastic life, including chanting, prayers, rituals, and the priceless relics and icons from the Byzantine Empire stored on "The Holy Mountain," Mt. Athos. Bob Simon reports.
