Vocations: Answering God’s Call Discernment: Guided by Grace Resources for Parents


“Jesus is the model of complete and trusting adherence to the will of  the Father, to whom every consecrated person must look. Attracted by him, from  the very first centuries of Christianity, many men and women have left families,  possessions, material riches and all that is humanly desirable in order to  follow Christ generously and live the Gospel without compromise, which had  become for them a school of deeply rooted holiness. Today too, many undertake  this same demanding journey of evangelical perfection and realise their vocation  in the profession of the evangelical counsels.”Pope Benedict XVI, for the 46th World Day of Prayer for Vocations
