How to Discern in Our Time

Here at Glenmary we are hopeful the New Year will be filled with an abundance of young men responding to their vocation call to serve Mission-Land, USA. To help men who are in the process of discerning their call, I wrote a short article about how to discern in our time. Hopefully it provides some insight into how you can recognize God's voice in your prayer. The article has recently been posted on our Glenmary website and it is only a five minute read. I hope it will give you something to reflect on for more than five minutes. If you know anyone who is in the process of discerning, please share it with them as well. Perhaps God is working through you to help someone else discern his missionary vocation.
