God’s Calling is a fabulous experience. I am learning that God doesn’t just ring once! When we accept a foundational call to Baptism, many options become alive in our life. Many choices must be made as we live out our Baptism. Then a second call comes alive when we choose the path we will pursue God along: married life, religious life, priesthood, single life, etc. That is huge, of course, and requires many a prayer and reflection.
Actually, there may be many calls from God. These may consist of call to raise a family, take a particular job, get more involved in Church, face a difficult challenge and others. Our foundation is in Baptism and our vocation is how we live out our fundamental call of Baptism.
I have been writing this blog for nearly 2 years and today we were able to kick it up to its own page. It is very exciting and i am looking forward to this new side of my ministry as vocation director. My purpose is to be with women who are discerning their call to religious life. Many, many questions arise in such a journey and I welcome them. Many, many prayers are needed during discernment and I will say mine for you. Many, many thoughts surface in such a serious time and I welcome you to share them. August 2, 1982, was my Final Monastic Profession and so I have many rich years of experiences I am thrilled to share with you. Just ask, just write and just know God is leading the Way. �
