I’ve heard, mostly from older Catholic books and texts, about the “duties of one’s state in life”. I have a basic idea of them and how it differs for different vocations, but is there any reliable resource to know more precisely what they are? Also, I would add that the duties seem especially clear for children, married couples and priests/religious, but less so for single young adults…for example, would pursuing higher studies (according to one’s financial means, of course) be considered a “duty”?
I would be very happy and grateful to learn more about the subject (and to see if I’ve “missed” anything!) :o
