See how Sister Barbara O'Kane uses the acronym P.R.A.Y. for discerners considering religious life.
In this #Nunday video, Sister Madonna Swintkoske, OSF, talks about discerning her vocation to the Sisters of St. Francis of the Holy Cross.
Standing at the foot of the cross causes one to ask the deeper questions about life and calling. Vocation Directors help people understand those deeper questions that are part of God’s plan.
At a point along my discernment journey, I was given the advice, “It’s not a career question, Maria, it’s a vocation question.”
It was through my experiences with the monastic community that I began thinking about religious life as a possibility for me. After a couple of years of discernment, I formally joined the community as a postulant.
