How do I know my vocation?

In order to know your vocation, it is necessary to discern God’s call. Discernment is the process of recognizing or understanding God’s will in your life. Discernment is done with the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

When discerning what God calls us to do, we must remember that first and foremost we are called to be holy, to love God above all things and to love others as ourselves. From this point we begin to discern the particular vocation God is calling us to.

When we ask ourselves, “What does God want for me?” we must remember that God loves us and wants the best for us. He wants us to be happy, and whatever he calls us to will make us happy.

Therefore, do not be afraid to be a follower of Jesus Christ as he calls you deeper and deeper into his Sacred Heart. If Jesus Christ is calling you to be a priest, all that you need will be given to you.
