I am discerning right now in my life to consider the religious and priesthood life. As such, I was wondering if there are any good books available on vocations? In particular I am looking for books which talk about the different charisms each religious order practices. I believe this will greatly help in my discernment and preparation.
I would suggest you call a vocation director for each order and ask them to recommend a few books to you. There is no obligation on your part-(when you contact them)
Otherwise you could just go to a local Catholic Bookstore or browse online for Biographies of the different Saints connected with each order.
Blessings on your search
