Vocation means a “call”. Everybody is called by God to know, love and serve him. The difference is how each one does it. You want to put God first in your life and find out what His plan is for you but you don’t know where to begin.
Discernment is necessary.
The Ave Maria House of Discernment is dedicated by the Diocese of Calgary to help women discern their vocational call. Ave Maria House offers time in prayer, silence, learning, listening, sharing, and community. These elements are essential to hear God’s voice and respond.
At the Ave Maria House time is planned so God may have a chance to answer your questions: Who am I? Where do I come from? Where am I going? How is God calling me to use my gifts and talents to serve Him and others?
Look at Christ’s love and see what stirs in your heart. When you stop and think about his sacrifice, are there times you want to follow him, to be totally his and give yourself to him without reserve and to put everything you have into bringing him to others?
The true key to discerning is listening to Christ and telling him that you trust him totally and simply want to do whatever he asks of you.
Setting up a simple spiritual plan based on self-knowledge to remove any obstacles to God’s grace will help in the discernment process. The Ave Maria House of Discernment is designed to help you to hear and respond to Christ’s call.
