“When I was younger, I always asked myself: Who am I? What do I want? But these questions did not really resonate in the environment in which I found myself . . . until I came to this school. They have challenged me to face them and to deepen them . . . What challenges me the most is the reality of poverty and injustice. I would like to do something to change it . . . I still do not have answers and I cannot guarantee that one day I will have them; but I try to do a lot of listening and what I can say with certainty is: ‘I am a vocation, I am a mission’.” — A young man in discernment. (Circular 475)
Does this sound like your son?
If so, he needs your guidance and, most importantly, your support to walk this path and answer a calling you may not have had.
IF YOUR SON IS CONSIDERING THE BROTHERS’ LIFE, YOUR ENCOURAGEMENT GOES A LONG WAY.
You already trust us to educate your young man. Let’s become partners to help guide him in his discernment. As Brothers, we cannot simply recruit — or worse, force — him to live this life unless he is truly called to it. With your support, he can be free to hear what God is truly calling him to.
