I clearly heard a voice telling me to “enter the convent”. Now, I’m not much for hearing voices, but this message would not go away. I remember going into our church which was a huge, quiet place. I would kneel by the statue of Mary and ask her to have her son leave me alone!

What does it mean to stand at the foot of the Cross?

March 15, 2021

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.
