Vocatus atque non vocatus deus aderit
Called or not called, God will be present


I think this phrase is from Erasmus, influenced by Horaces:

Tantalum atque Tantali
genus coercet, hic levare functum
pauperem laboribus
vocatus atque non vocatus audit.

Proud Tantalus and the son of Tantalus he
holdeth fast, and, summoned or
unsummoned, lends an ear to free the poor
man when his toils are o'er.

Most interestingly, K.G. Jung adopted the "Vocatus" motto for his house:
