Singleness and the Vocation Train
Last edited 6th July 2015

Does God call some people to Singleness?So is singleness an actual vocation? Does God call some of us to a single life (not consecrated in any way) or is this just the default position? An argument against singleness as a vocation can be found here. But the reality is that some people may never marry, enter religious life or become a priest for many reasons: war, illness, disability, lack of available partners, to name a few.

5 Stereotypes About Religious Life That are Totally Wrong
Last edited 18th June 2015

God’s perfect plan... God’s call for your life isn’t based on whether you fit the earthly-stereotypes of what a priest or religious sister should be like. God’s call for you is personal. He calls you by name. And if He calls you to to the religious life it’s because you, in your strengths and weaknesses, are perfect for the religious vocation. God has the most beautiful plan for you, one that only you can fulfill.
