"Moses, Moses."

spoken to Moses at the sight of the "Burning Bush"

"You shall conceive and bear a Son."

spoken to Mary by the angel

"Francis, repair my Church."

spoken to Francis of Assisi in a dream

All through history men and women have heard the Lord. Have you?

God’s call is written in the heart. It is not a voice "out there" calling you to be something you are not, but a call "in here calling you to be the person you were born to be. Just as a culture needs poets and artists, singers and dancers, prophets and priests, so the Church needs monks and nuns ... lovers of God and all God’s creation.

A PRAYER OF DISCERNMENT by Thomas Merton

My Lord God,
I have no idea where I am going.
I do not see the road ahead of me.
I cannot know for certain where it will end.
Nor do I really know myself,
and the fact that I think that I am following your will does not mean that I actually am doing so.
For I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you,
and I hope that I have the desire in all that I am doing.
I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire.
And I know that if I do this
you will lead me by the right road though I may know nothing about it.
Therefore will I trust you always
though I may seem to be lost and in the shadows of death.
I will not fear, for you will not leave me to face the perils alone.
