Vocations: Discerning Women

posted Sep 23, 2011, 11:50 AM by St. Joseph Cheyenne
Consecrated women are called in a very special way to be signs of God’s tender love towards the human race. – Vita Conserata, 57 A woman who enters consecrated life chooses to deepen her baptismal commitment by taking vows which emphasize the values of prayer, loving service, and simple living in a community with others. Consecrated women serve the Church and community in many ways, including: youth ministry, homeless and hungry, battered women, education, healthcare, family live and parish pastoral ministry. Some Sisters are totally dedicated to the contemplative life. The realization that God is asking you to follow Him in consecrated life is made through active participation in the Church, prayer, receiving the sacraments, spiritual reading, and service in the Church. It may be an idea you have considered for a long time or one that has come to you during a significant moment in your life. These are prayers and resources to assist in discerning God’s plan for you.
