The recipe for prophetic vocation

Gautama Siddhartha's mother died a few days after he ways born, but his father was powerful and wealthy and lavished him with every comfort and convenience and security.

One can only speculate about Jesus' relationship with Mary and Joseph, but I can only imagine it was difficult for everyone.

Mohamed's father died before he was born and his mother died when he was five. Mohamed's childhood was brutal.

Does missed parental nurturance predispose one to prophetic vocation?

The Five Remembrances


1.    I am sure to become old; I cannot avoid aging.
2.    I am sure to become ill; I cannot avoid illness.
3.    I am sure to die; I cannot avoid death.
4.    I will differentiate and separate from all that is dear and beloved to me.
5.    I am responsible for my actions. I create my life and relate to life with my actions. Whatever I do, for good or evil, I inherit the consequences.
