Default How do I discern my vocation?

I'm a young adult female discerning my vocation and find myself 50/50 inclined to both: I am attracted to both and see the great depth of beauty in both. I've got a very close guy friend and it is understood between us that if I am called to marriage he would pursue me seriously and we would both discern the possibility of marriage together. I've also visited a couple times a beautiful Poor Clare convent about an hour away from where I live and I love the beauty sisters and their life of sacrifice, chastity, poverty and obedience for the salvation of souls. How does one discover clearly which vocation will best lead him/her to sanctity? How does God make that apparent in one's life? Thank you!

I encourage you to spend regular time before the Lord in the tabernacle--and wait. He will let you know in His good time. He is the one who does the calling--not us. You are in our prayers.

Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
