I have found the One my soul loves. Song of Songs 3:4
"The gift of religious vocation is rooted in the gift of baptism but is not given to all the baptized. It is freely given and unmerited: offered by God to those whom He chooses freely from among His people and for the sake of His people." Essential Elements in the Church's Teaching on Religious Life III, I, 2 (cf. Perfectae Caritatis 5)
Every person has a primary vocation to be holy (the universal call to holiness). In fulfilling that call, a young woman is drawn to a greater sanctity by responding to the life that God is calling her to live. What is most necessary when discerning God's holy will is growing in and deepening one's prayer life.
It is strongly encouraged that a young woman who is discerning live the daily elements of the Communion of Reparation Lifestyle: Holy Mass, Holy Hours of Adoration, frequent Confession, and the praying of the Rosary.
