Welcome to the Society of Saint John the Evangelist

Vocation

During my novitiate here, there were times, more than once, when I faced the question, “Am I really called to this life?” “Can I continue to follow the call?” At the beginning it sometimes took several days of mulling over the question, later it became a matter of a few hours, and ultimately, whenever that question entered my mind, even in the years after I was professed, I was able within a matter of minutes, or even seconds, to answer myself, “I am able.”
