God has created me to do some definite service; God has committed some work to me which has not been committed to another  I am a link in a chain, a bond of connections between persons. God has not created me for naught.  I shall do good, I shall do God's work  if I do but keep the commandments and serve God in my calling.  John Henry Newman
