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.
Ever have the experience of looking for something, like car keys or a cell phone, just to find that it’s right before your eyes? Sometimes vocations are like that.
See how Sister Barbara O'Kane uses the acronym P.R.A.Y. for discerners considering religious life.
