"NOTHING DONE IN A HUGE RUSH OR IMPULSIVELY IS EVER DONE REALLY WELL."

- St Francis de Sales

Taking things further

Discernment cannot be done alone or exclusively within ones own mind or heart. To test a sense of being drawn to religious life a searching person needs to engage with others. Some of those may be fellow travellers in the first stages of discernment, some may be friends and family who know you well and some of them may be more experienced guides through the process of discernment.

This section opens up different pathways of discernment and some links that will help you engage with some guides into the future. Their role is not to recruit you to a specific form of religious life but to help you to hear and respond in faith to your deepest gifts, your story and the needs of the world.
