What is in your mind?

London-060-1“The experience of a vocation is unique and indescribable, and is only perceived as a gentle breeze of the clarifying touch of grace.
A vocation is a breathing of the Holy Spirit.” Pope John Paul II

As you reflect on your life’s work we invite you to discern with us the unique path of your life in love and service of God. It is our prayer; as you walk through the experience of finding out what you are being called to, that the Holy Spirit brings you to the “clarifying touch of God’s grace.”

What am I to do in my life? What are my Gifts? What am I passionate about? What values do I hold? How do I respond to cultures different from mine? How does my heart respond to the concerns and pains of others? Do I have a sense of adventure? What is God’s will for my future?Answering these questions within ourselves brings us face to face with the challenge of our life’s vocation.

Discerning your vocation is exciting. Getting there is at times a struggle. It is best walked through guided by family and trusted friends. It is a good idea as well to seek spiritual direction from someone qualified within the church. Should you wish, a member of the Holy Rosary Sisters is available to answer any questions you have while discerning your unique call, or to help you to engage a sister as mentor or spiritual director on your journey.

Whether called to active or contemplative religious life, or life in ministry as a lay member, Christ walks with you on the journey. Through prayerful reflection and thoughtful listening to that inner voice of love, the future lies before you as a promising plan to be fulfilled.
