Considering A Vocation?


“What will you do with your life? What are your plans? Have you ever thought of committing your existence totally to Christ? Do you think that there can be anything greater than to bring Jesus to people and people to Jesus?” -Pope John Paul II

Practical ways of discerning

Discernment requires asking God what will make you happy. People faithfully discern God’s will by bringing Him in the decision through:

    1. Prayer: Prayer, especially in the presence of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Praying the Rosary, staying in touch with Our Lady, whose total surrender to God is a model for all followers of Christ.
    2. Sacraments: Reception of the sacraments of penance and the Eucharist, which clear the mind and heart of barriers to hearing God.
    3. Counsel: Seek counsel from people you trust: parents, priest, Brother, or Sister. Get spiritual direction from someone trained to do so.
    4. Silence: Being with God in silence in parts of our daily life and on periodic retreats.
    5. Decision: Avoid conflicting decisions (e.g., one can not faithfully discern a call to consecrated life or priesthood while discerning married life in an exclusive dating relationship).
    6. Visit: If God may be calling you to priesthood or Religious life, get information on the life and the Orders you may be interested in. Visit a convent or seminary: You do not know what you are saying yes or no to unless you go and see.
    7. Trust: Above all, trust that your happiness is God’s desire.
