Some people experience a bit of interior conflict with this one - I want it (or I have a strong hunch God might be calling me) and yet...
If the conflict expresses itself as a desire for husband and family, it really isn't a conflict. Marriage remains the normal state in life - desire for it merely demonstrates a healthy female nature.
And most young women do not even have the idea of being a religious.
One sign of a vocation can be the idea wandering regularly through your mind.
- Are you haunted by the thought that you might be called?
- Does the idea sometimes seem really appealing?
- Do you have interest (or even a fascination) with things religious?
We are rarely attracted to something to which we are...not attracted.
