Books for Discernment

Hello Everyone,
I have been discerning for quite a while now, and now that it’s summer, I’m looking for some good books to read on discerning vocations to the priesthood/religious life. If you have any ideas please post them.


I personally found “The Priest Is Not His Own”, by the Venerable Fulton J. Sheen (ISBN: 978-1586170448) rather enlightening. It’s a little “heady”, so to speak.
