What is a Vocation?
A vocation is a call to that special walk in life ordained for us by God, part of a great divine plan. It is a mystery that man accepts and lives in the depth of his being, a gift and a grace, which we cannot truly grasp or understand. God Who loves us, Who is love, is also "He Who calls". Therefore in the presence of a vocation we can only adore the mystery, respond lovingly to the initiative of love, and say 'yes' to the call. At the heart of every vocation there is always Jesus, Who Himself explained, "You did not choose me but I chose you. And I appointed you to go and bear fruit" (John 15:16). The response depends on the generosity of the heart of the one called, because He Who calls always leaves freedom of choice: If only you would listen to the Lord, the great Friend. He looks you in the eye and He speaks to your heart in the intimacy of personal prayer.

What is a Carmelite Vocation?
A Carmelite vocation is a very special call, given only to a few, to turn deliberately away from the things of this world, in order to seek the things of God, in a life dedicated to prayer. It requires great love, courage, generosity and a real willingness to respond to the Will of God speaking through all the daily demands of Carmelite life.
