Fr. Paul Jerome shares his wisdom:
1. WHAT I LOVE ABOUT BEING A MONK!
The abundant time I have for private and public prayer, to develop a personal relationship with our Heavenly Father, our Savior and their Holy Spirit, and with our Blessed Mother. As well as the peace these relationships bring.
2. WHAT I WOULD TELL ANYONE DISCERNING A VOCATION
Be aware that Satan throws up many doubts and temptations to enjoy the various pleasures of life. These seduce one to lose sight of the wonderful gift of a religious vocation, and the real sanctification of one’s life, with the opportunity to seek the Kingdom and do God’s will in one’s life.
3. READING SUGGESTIONS
Two little booklets: ‘Monastic Principles’ by Thomas Merton & ‘Thoughts to Thrill’ by a monk of New Clairvaux.
