CaThOLiC qUiZ! ....How much do you know about your faith? 
  My goal in making this site is to help those thinking about a religious vocation, or those who are just curious about the Catholic faith, find what they are looking for.
    I have been thinking about a religious vocation for a long time, and truly believe that I am called to devote my life to God.  I hope that this site will help to present different communites to those seeking information. Most of these sites are contemplative (cloistered) nuns, and some are just miscelaneous Catholic websites.

For those discerning a religious vocation I would recommed saying the Rosary. Our Mother made us 15 promises if we say the Rosary devoutly everyday.  They are awsome.  She actually said them!  I would really recommend saying it.  I guess that you could say that the Rosary saved me. When I say it I think about Jesus continually, when I don't I fall to temptation easier.  I ask Our Lady to pray for all of you every night.  Please ask her to pray for me.  I also like to say that if you really believe that God is calling you don't hesitate to talk to a Sister.  I wanted to talk to a Priest about what I felt like God was calling me to, but I was afraid to talk to him for some reason.  So I prayed for strength.  One day he came up to me and told me that he thought that I had a vocation to the religious life!  He came to me!  Praying is the key.
