God’s desire for each of us is that we be holy, healthy, happy people who are in relationship with Him and of service to those around us. There are many ways to become this kind of person, one of which is to answer God’s call to religious life.
These things can help you answer
God’s call for you:
Honesty with Yourself
You need to know yourself and be able to share yourself with someone. This should be someone whom you trust and respect and who has your best interest at heart.
The Help of Trusted Others
These people can be wonderful sounding boards. And often they hear and see things that you may have missed.
Regular, Consistent Prayer
It is important that this be REAL prayer: the real you before the real God.
