Abstract: 
The concept of vocation is often understood as a call followed by an answer. My thesis intends to demonstrate that the writings of Charles de Foucauld express a more complex dynamic where there is a tension between call and answer. This tension is long lasting and produces an evolving answer that remains coherent. This dynamic is analyzed by means of three themes – priest, prophet and king. Those three themes are dignities of Christ that a Christian receives at baptism. Using a theoretical framework based on Amour et justice from Paul Ricœur, we show how each theme allows a specific literary construction of the dynamic of call and answer. These specificities also express a progression in the maturity of the answer.
