Religious Order or Job?
I may have posted this question here..But it bothers me more and more...
I have been thinking about it for a longer time, but now the time is passing quickly. I am to finish my university studies this May. Then I am not fully decided what to do...
I have been thinking about joining a religious order four years now. I want to join one (at best with Ignatian spirituality), but on the other hand i would also like to have a work experience..
Thatīs the real reason I want to postpone entering the order..
Some days ago I came back home from studies abroad(just one semester/term in Italy). I got some real life experiences, letī s say slaps. And I think I need more..
I read many books over vocation discernment and the time to do the decision..
From your point of view, would it be bad/waste of time if I postponed my decision to enter the order just for one year?When on the retreat the priest asked me why I was speculating..
Any advice...or similar stories
