Everyone has a vocation. A vocation is a gift from God that allows us to be our best selves when it is followed. It is a free invitation from God without pressure, coercion or manipulation. God has a way of inviting that is sometimes difficult to resist. For some it is marriage, for others it is the single life, and for still others it is the ordained or religious life. Each lifestyle is a way to live out that call each of us received at baptism. It is a call to put our gifts at the service of God and others.
We are called to respond in the way that best helps us to be a holy, healthy and happy person. God only wants the best for each of us. It is our job to discover what that best is.
Each of us must listen to her heart, pray to be open to God’s unique plan, and reflect with someone who knows us well.

Two Films about Catholic Sisters: “Sisters” and “Light of Love”
Sisters: “Sisters is a one-hour documentary film that takes us into the lives of five American Catholic Sisters. It is a film about faith and hope, love and death, seen through the eyes of five women who have committed their lives to the service of others in the deepest way. Without narration, their stories are told in the honest words and actions of the women themselves.” -Robert Gardner, Vimeo
Light of Love:“Light of Love is a one-hour documentary produced by Lighthouse Catholic Media and Imagine Sisters. The film also follows five Catholic Sisters and begins with the sisters responding to why they feel called to religious life.” -A Nun’s Life
