Some women hear God’s call clearly; others feel it in more subtle ways.

You may be experiencing His call if you experience these feelings:

  • Love of God that manifests itself in a desire to give one’s life as a witness to the immensity of God’s love for all people
  • A desire to live simply
  • An ability to relate with a variety of people, to be happy alone or in a group
  • Joy in serving others in any outreach or parish involvement
  • Generosity
  • The ability to listen to others and accept direction when needed
  • Desire to love expansively rather than needing an intimate relationship with one person
  • Desire to grow in union with God through prayer and service of the needy
