Vocation

Home Vocation
“Those who let themselves be seized by this love cannot help but abandon
everything to follow him” (Pope John Paul II).

As a young woman Saint Jeanne Jugan felt herself seized by Divine Love. She  realized that God had a plan for her, and yet for many years she had no idea where he was leading her. She confided to her mother, “God wants me for himself. He is keeping me for a work which is not yet founded.” Years went by before Jeanne saw the unfolding of Gods plan.

If she were here today, Jeanne would offer this advice to anyone discerning their vocation:

  • Pray often, asking God to reveal his will and to help you know yourself better.
    Find a church or chapel that has Eucharistic adoration and set aside time each
    week for silent adoration.
  • Live a sacramental life: attend daily Mass whenever possible and take advantage of the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
  • Set aside time to read Scripture and other good spiritual books such as the
    lives of the saints, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, classics of the
    spiritual life, etc.
  • Seek the guidance of a spiritual director who has a good understanding of the
    consecrated life, or of a religious sister.
  • Attend retreats or days of prayer, especially in a religious community.
  • Visit a religious community.
  • Commit yourself to some form of volunteer service to God’s people, especially the poor.
  • Choose to spend time with friends who are also serious about their faith, and who will support your desire to grow spiritually
