Vocational discernment should be demanding, says Ecuadorian Bishop

.- During a press conference at the 5th General Conference of the Latin American Bishops’ Council, the Apostolic Vicar of Zamora (Ecuador), Bishop Fausto Gabriel Travez, said the vocational discernment of one who desires to enter religious life should be demanding and should help to discover the candidate’s “spiritual quality.”

Bishop Travez urged that candidates for religious life be carefully chosen.  Sharing a few details about his own personal vocation, he recalled that as a child, “I was very mischievous,” and his father told him he was not fit to be a priest.  As he grew older, he discovered that God was indeed calling him, and he encouraged all those who feel God’s call to respond with generosity.
