To Help You Discern


Let the Saints Show You God’s Plan for Your Life

One thing that anybody who has ever heard God calling to them knows is that God doesn’t, except in rare cases, typically appear in pillars of clouds and burning bushes.

Usually, God gently whispers.

Amidst the noise of modern society, where the soft whispers of God can be difficult to hear, discerning takes commitment, reflection, and internal quiet. The Franciscan Friars of Atonement know this, and to help people listen to God’s voice in their lives, have developed an online tool to help guide you in prayers of discernment.

Divided into three movements, this tool will lead you along a path to a place where you can hear the calling of God and discern what God is asking of you.

“So in your vocation…be prepared and be ready for times of trial. We know not how much you may be called upon to suffer. We know not how much any of us may be called upon to suffer in an age of intense agony and suffering the world has gone through. Pray in the spirit of humility, knowing your own frailty, your own weakness, remembering what Our Lord said, ‘Without Me you cannot do anything,’ lifting His arms to sustain you. Never permit anything to separate you from Him”
