Mutual Sharing and Supporting the development of a Vocation to consecrated life
The life of a missionary sister, a Carthusian hermit, an enclosed nun, or a teaching friar are vastly different, and the particular pull towards each way of life will be very different. A Mother asks “My son has spoken about a vocation. I see his love for Christ and the church. To see the joy on his face when he speaks about it, is truly wonderful. So why do I suddenly feel so frightened of it? I think the "letting go" is more difficult than I thought.” It can sometimes be a lonely journey for those who are trying to discover what God is calling them to do and the subsequent and path through life. Those who are searching will value the support of family and friends; but these too will have questions and concerns. We all react in different ways to change and changes that may be happening to our loved ones. The important thing is to try to understand what the person is going through and where they may be headed.
