Thank you, Sisters Anne Marie, Elena & Maria Guadalupe for your first session on “Career or Calling Discernment Series,” which is very helpful to those discerning their vocation in life . St. John’s Gospel is rich in many themes of the qualities that make for good relationships & virtues in one’s paths even for those who already have chosen, with the help of the Lord, their vocations. I’m looking forward to hearing and pondering your next podcasts. Graces & blessings to each of you, especially those in discerning their vocation.

As a Franciscan Sister Of Christian Charity, I am very appreciative of, and, excited for Sister Maria Guadalupe’s discernment story. Sister Maria Guadalupe set aside time for prayer, listening for God’s voice. And she found His peace within her heart.

Sister’s story parallels My story! After completing high school, I worked in a cheese factory during the summer. As this season was ending, I didn’t know what to do next! I had friends, enjoying good times, yet, it just wasn’t completely satisfying. My dilemma prompted me to find a solitary spot, which a wooden seat under our basement stairs. I spoke to God from my heart. His answer to me was that ” I would find my greatest peace at the Franciscan Sisters’ Convent”! I followed His lead. That was over 50 years ago! I am still following His lead! God is faithful!
