After some years discerning, trying an aspirancy in one congregation overseas almost two years ago, and thinking that I didn't have a religious vocation, the thought of that more still comes back and there is still an attraction to that particular order (not that congregation- though sometimes that comes back too-temptation perhaps).
The thing I'm thinking about is that that order is fairly limited in my country-which would mean seeking if I have a vocation overseas. My heart says to check it out, my head comes up with loads of reasons why not to! I have a melancholic dominant temperment and find it difficult to make massive changes all at once, and that perhaps is also playing a role in holding me back. I was wondering what the realities are on overseas religious vocations? Do they really happen? I've been told that they do, but rarely and it's just a whole lot easier to seek out your vocation in your own country (that just sounded like a cop-out to me).
Thoughts, comments welcome :) God bless!
