Holy Orders

"When we are whom we are called to be, we will set the world ablaze!" - Saint Catherine of Siena

"Whatever you make of your life, let it be something that reflects the love of Christ. In whatever you do, remember that Christ is calling you, in one way or another, to the service of love: the love of God, of your neighbor." - Pope Saint John Paul II

"Lay all of your cares trustingly in God's hands, and let yourself be guided by the Lord just like a little child."

- Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross

Discernment is the prayerful process of discovering what God's plan is for your life, and the unique way He has called you to love and serve Him, either through the single, married, or religious life.

VocationMinistry.org has a wealth of resources for every stage of discernment.
