Called by God. Discernment and preparation for religious life. By. Rachael Marie Collins
This is amazing must-read for all Catholics, and especially Catholic parents. Rachael shares such wisdom about vocations and professions. What a treat to see a book by this author on such an important topic. Understanding the divine vocation of religious life and what it truly means is clearly explained here. I like how she juxtaposed married life as seen by pop culture to real married life which is a marathon not a sprint. Her chapter on sentimentality is crucial. Discernment and the way we make decisions must be reasonable and not driven entirely by emotions. We had the luxury of hearing her speak at a local Catholic woman’s group tonight - what a great speaker and author.
