Vocation Harvest

During the 2015 IRL National Meeting, Bill Snyder, program director of WSFI 88.5-FM Catholic Radio, took the time to interview over twenty religious men and women and record their testimonies for a new joint radio initiative, "Vocation Harvest."
 
In these brief interviews, the consecrated religious responded to such questions as:
How did you first recognize God's call?
What were some specific practices that helped you discern your vocation?
How did that discernment process culminate in your choosing a community?
What do you find most rewarding about religious life?
What do you find most challenging about religious life?
 
 
Their responses were edited down to 2-4 minute audio clips which will be make available online, as well as broadcast on Catholic radio stations around the county.
 
It is the IRL's hope that those who listen to "Vocation Harvest" will be informed and inspired, and that young people might hear their own story in the testimonies of consecrated men and women!

  • Now some insights into Aloysius’ spirituality. To the one virtue which the Church has chosen, and on account of which has chosen him ‘the universal patron of youth’, was his chastity. All the evidence we have indicates that he had very strong sexual passions. We know that from his own writing; we know that from … Continue reading The Spirituality of St. Aloysius Gonzaga by Rev.

  • In the history of monasticism, Saint Romuald and the Camaldolese appear as a bridge between the Desert Fathers’ eremitic tradition and the Benedictine monastic way of life. A precursor to the Carthusians, Romuald battled abuses and laxity in the Church, reforming existing monasteries and establishing new ones faithful to the Rule of St. Benedict.  A … Continue reading Saint Romuald: Solitary to the Solitaries →
