How Do I Hear God's Call
In My Life?
comes from a Latin word meaning “calling”. Usually when we hear the word
vocation, we think only of priests and religious. However, every single
person in the world is called by God to love and serve Him. There are four
types of vocations: priesthood, religious life, marriage and single life.
All of these vocations are ways in which we reach heaven.
The key to
finding our vocation is prayer. Our world is full of distractions—TV,
internet, cell phones, texting, IPods, commercials, Twitter, etc. Very few
people take the time to pray in silence every day because we might be afraid
silence. We encounter God and who we really are in the eyes of God in the
silence and this might frighten us. However, it is in this silence that the
Lord speaks directly to our hearts.
So if your heart is restless and you are trying to find your way in life,
take time to pray. Find a church or adoration chapel and take some time in
silence with the Lord.
Other recommendations include attending daily Mass, going to confession,
reading the Gospels, praying the rosary, finding a spiritual director,
reading the spiritual classics and hanging around good people who support
your faith life.
If you are thinking about priesthood, I would encourage you to take part in
some of the events we offer in the Diocese of Joliet. You are not alone in
searching for your calling by God.

Totus Tuus is a Catholic youth program dedicated to
sharing the Gospel and promoting the Catholic faith through catechesis,
evangelization, Christian witness, and Eucharistic worship. The goal of
Totus Tuus is to help young people grow in the understanding of, and
strengthen their faith in, Jesus Christ. It is only by establishing a real
and personal relationship with Him that we can be led to the love of the
Father in the Spirit and so be made sharers in the life of the Holy Trinity.
"I am the way, the truth and the life. No one can come to the Father except
through me" (John 4:16). Totus Tuus strives to bring our faith to life by
creating a balance between knowledge of the meaning of the Sacraments and an
authentic Sacramental life.
Totus Tuus seeks to foster openness to vocations in the young people we
serve as well as among the teachers. This is accomplished by placing special
emphasis on the importance and necessity of prayer, Eucharistic devotion,
and Marian devotion, in addition to catechetical instruction and formation
in the Catholic faith.
We want to know what you think
understand what young adults feel about religious vocations today.
