[quote=Paris Blues]Let’s say I was called to the religious life…
How would I know for sure which order or “lifestyle” would work best for me? Would I take it on which feels comfortable or which would give me “more life” so to speak or what? Or more, which one would bring me CLOSER to the Lord?
Any ideas or help?
The best thing to do is to try them out, so to speak. All of the monasteries I’ve visited let you make vocational retreats (mulitple ones at that). You can spend a weekend, a week, a month, or sometimes longer, living the life, to discern whether or not it’s right for you.
