The Call to Religious Life

passion flowerEveryone has a vocation. A vocation is gift from God. For some it is marriage; for others, the single life; for still others, it is life in the priesthood or religious life as a sister or nun. Each vocation is graced and calls us to consider our giftedness and how we can put ourselves and our gifts at the service of God and others. Through the way that best suits us, we can become our best selves.

How do I know if I have a vocation to Religious Life?

The best way to answer this question is to listen to your heart, to pray from the depths of your soul, and to talk to someone else who knows you well.

Possible questions to reflect on are:

  • Do I find myself wondering if there is something more to life?
  • Do I have a desire to know God more deeply?
  • Am I drawn to prayer and participation in the liturgy?
  • Have I taken an active role in the Iife of the church? (perhaps as a catechist, Eucharistic minister, etc)
  • Do I feel called to live out the Gospel?
  • Do I desire to live a simple lifestyle?
  • Do I feel called to share life, ministry and spirituality in a religious community?
  • Do I feel an affinity with the history, spirituality, vision of the Sisters of the Cross and Passion?

If you answer "yes" to most of these questions, you may be interested in talking with a Sister of the Cross and Passion.
