God speaks to souls in many ways. Sometimes He uses spectacular means as in His call of Abraham and Moses. More often, however, Jesus calls a soul to His special service by ordinary means, for example a religious ceremony, a book, a word of a friend or family member. Such calls awaken a desire in the soul to serve God in a religious vocation. This vocation is a gift from God, an invitation to follow Jesus more closely.
As you discern your vocation be open to the inspirations of the Holy Spirit and pray for guidance. We pray for you daily that you may know God’s Will and have the courage to respond to His invitation.
Helpful resources in discerning God’s will for you:
- Pray before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament
- Pray the rosary with the intention of seeking God’s will
- Talk to a priest who can help guide you
