A NEW series exploring Vocational Discernment – how do we discern our vocation in life? How does God make His will known to us? These and other questions Metropolitan Jerome will explore in these live and recorded broadcasts from the Brighton Oratory every Saturday morning from 10am.
In this episode, Metropolitan Jerome continues discussing the fundamental principles necessary to discern God’s will for oneself in relation to God’s general will for all He has purposed to exist… His Grace begins by explaining again the importance and necessity of taking “time out” to properly discern God’s calling and purpose for one’s life, reiterating that the Christian recognises that their life is no longer their own but God’s and that offering one’s life to God is the ultimate expression of charity in fulfilment of the First “Great” Commandment (cf Mtt22:37-38) and response to Christ’s self-offering love on Calvary. He then discusses the importance of “preparation” and “self-examination” in readiness for effective discernment, in order to better know oneself by identifying one’s weaknesses and strengths.
