The religious call is a gift of the mercy of God. It is the responsibility of every Christian to listen attentively in order to verify the signs of the divine plan in this regard.

The primary element of a religious vocation is to be found in the invitation God gives to certain of His children.

It is therefore fitting that those who show positive signs of a vocation to the contemplative life carry out a time of experimentation in order to have a first look at their suitability, respecting freedom of choice and the privacy of conscience during the time of vacational discernment.
