Am I Called?

“I long to give my love and my whole life to the service of spreading the Good News.”

―Bl. Maria Helena Stollenwerk

In our journey of faith, we may have many ways to respond to God's invitation to a creative life.

In the Catholic Church we have traditional tried and proven ways of responding to God: Married love, dedication in a single life or religious/vowed life. 

In our case, we invite young women to a religious missionary life in our missionary congregation.

Some initial questions to consider when seeking out religious life...

 

  • Do I recognize God's loving, healing, forgiving presence in my own life?
    And am I challenged to reflect God's love to others?

  • Do I have an interest in, or a commitment to, making Jesus known to those who have not yet heard of Jesus?

  • Do I have an interest in, or a commitment to, working for the full development of the peoples of the world?

  • Do I have an interest in, and the ability for, serving people in a way that enables their growth?

  • Do I have an interest in, and the ability for, going beyond my own language and culture?

  • Do I have an interest in, and the ability for, dialoguing with people of other faiths and convictions?

  • Do I have the largeness of heart to live in inter-cultural communities?

 

If you have answered "YES" to some of the previous questions, you might want to search and inquire what that could mean in your life with God. 

God calls us each by name, seeking to make us whole and happy in each stage of our life.

Our task is to listen well, to trust and to respond with attentive love to the Holy Spirits' promptings.

What counts on the way of discernment is your faithfulness to the gentle whispers of the Spirit as well as to the sometimes shocking thunder awakening you to your truth.
God's voice is persistent; God's love is constant.
