The term vocation comes from the Latin word vocare, which means to call. Everyone has a calling from God to be holy and a saint. Your vocation is how you love and serve God and others. Determining your vocation entails discernment, which is a prayerful decision making process. Weather you are discerning marriage, consecrated life, or the priesthood, it is important to spend time in prayer to listen to what the Lord is saying to you, and to be aware of what God is doing in your life. In making a major life decision, you may also want to seek the help of a spiritual director, or talk to one of the priests here at St. Catherine’s.
