Married Life, Religious Life and the Single Life have much in common. They each have their Joys and Sadness, their Blessings and Sacrifices. We will find our greatest joys in life by discerning and doing God’s will for our life.
It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain, (Jn. 15:16).
