Vocation and discernment
Make one’s talents serve the world
Develop a relationship with God
Discerning our vocation means discovering how God invites each person to live out the gift of who they are in the world. Discernment is about developing a relationship with God such as:
- see one’s life as God sees it
- desire for one’s life what God wants for each person.
Discernment helps to become more attentive to what is going on in daily life, to deeper desires and hopes, as well as reactions or responses to the surrounding world. A relationship with God is the context of discernment and the foundation of a vocation. So, as one begins discerning, it is important to live a full Christian life.
