Vocation is a gift that each individual must treasure, but God respects our freedom to respond to that gift. When I was asked if I was ready for the second stage of my formation, the postulancy, I said YES because I realised that I wanted to follow Him more closely and know Him more deeply – the Precious Pearl that I am searching for.
I have become aware that nothing is more important than the spirituality that leads me to possess that treasure. There are times that God hides that treasure from me in order for me to seek Him out more and more and for me to persevere in His grace. This search will continue until I finally possess that treasure: Christ of the Rogate.
