...is to build and deepen our relationship with God!
Our relationship with God is the context of our discernment, AND the foundation of everyone's vocation. So, as we begin discerning, it’s important to be living a full Christian life.
How can we do this?
1. Grow in our relationship with Jesus and his Church through prayer and the sacraments. We take time to pray every day, especially praying with the Word of God. We participate fully at Mass at least weekly, and we seek to imitate Jesus more closely in our daily life, living in daily conversion and going regularly to the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
2. Embrace our own life and the lives of others as beautiful gifts of God, taking the time to meditate on the giftedness of our lives and focusing on gratitude in our prayer.
3. Live as disciples of Christ by growing in our knowledge and love of the Catholic faith, and our desire to share our faith with others through the New Evangelization. We study our faith and seek to live it by serving in our parish or in another ministry that appeals to us.
When we are living a full Christian life, it is easier for us to recognize God’s invitation for our lives.
