For those of you who have not yet seen it, I recently wrote a guest post for the blog “Roman Catholic Vocations,” which is run by Brad Watkins, assistant Vocation Director for the Diocese of Raleigh, N.C. (which happens to be the home diocese of a seminarian who was one of my best friends in college, and then the Master of Ceremonies at my consecration Mass!). In the post I wrote (which you can read here) I give a basic overview of this vocation, with special emphasis on the Rite itself.
I think Mr. Watkins does a great job with the overall. In my opinion it’s one of the best on-line resources for people discerning priestly or consecrated vocations, and I wish it would have existed when I first started discerning. Naturally, I’m especially grateful that he takes the time to include information on consecrated virginity—it’s always nice when this vocation is made a little less obscure!
