How Do I Know God Is Calling Me?

Sr. Mary Vuong, OP, made her life-long commitment to religious life in 2012.

Sometimes God speaks in fire and lightning. Sometimes God speaks in a whisper. But always, we must listen carefully for that voice, and be open to God’s plan.

Have you felt nudged by God to be or do something more?

God calls each individual to love and serve in different ways. The call to religious life can be intimidating but the decision to follow God’s plan can be liberating as well.

With any life change, we need to give ourselves the time and the space to make the best decision possible.  So set aside your fear and take a leap of faith, knowing that God is with you.

“The thought of making a life-long commitment to God in religious life might scare you. But if it makes you feel more alive and brings out the best in you, you might want to invest in testing out whether it’s God’s call for you.” (Sr. Mary Vuong, OP)

“Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men.”   (Matthew 4:19)
