Digitonomy. You asked about our callings from God.
I explained some aspects here too (which may or may not be helpful).
TimothyH correctly stated that celibacy & consecrated virginity are not the same. Sorry if my post (that jump started the thread) caused confusion. Tim is right. (Thanks Tim)
Below are some items that may be of help in deepening your understanding this issue.
St. Thomas Aquinas states the following . . . .
ST. THOMAS AQUINAS (Summa Theologica; Section 2 Part 2, question 152)
Reply to Objection 1. Virgins are “the more honored portion of Christ’s flock,” and “their glory more sublime” in comparison with widows and married women.
Reply to Objection 2. The hundredfold fruit is ascribed to virginity, according to Jerome Ep. cxxiii ad Ageruch.], on account of its superiority to widowhood, to which the sixtyfold fruit is ascribed, and to marriage, to which is ascribed the thirtyfold fruit. But according to Augustine (De QQ. Evang. i, 9), “the hundredfold fruit is given to martyrs, the sixtyfold to virgins, and the thirtyfold to married persons.” Wherefore it does not follow that virginity is simply the greatest of virtues, but only in comparison with other degrees of chastity.
Reply to Objection 3. Virgins “follow the Lamb whithersoever He goeth,” because they imitate Christ, by integrity not only of the mind but also of the flesh, as Augustine says (De Virgin. xxvii). Wherefore they follow the Lamb in more ways, but this does not imply that they follow more closely, because other virtues make us cleave to God more closely by imitation of the mind. The “new hymn” which virgins alone sing, is their joy at having preserved integrity of the flesh.
The Council of Trent also addresses this issue of extolling the state of virginity & celibacy.
SESSION 24 COUNCIL OF TRENT CANON X - If any one saith, that the marriage state is to be placed above the state of virginity, or of celibacy, and that it is not better and more blessed to remain in virginity, or in celibacy, than to be united in matrimony; let him be anathema.
Hope this is helpful.
