Q. Why don’t you do a lot of articles on specific religious communities, seminaries, and other institutions?
A. Other vocations websites give plenty of coverage to popular communities, seminaries, and to lesser known ones as well. This website is designed to give you tools for discernment so that you carefully learn who you are, what God wants you to be, and how to evaluate potential institutions. Also, just as with potential human spouses, each institution has its strengths and weaknesses. What can be tolerated by one person might be a deal breaker for another. Recommendations should come preferrably from an experienced person, such as a spiritual director who is familiar with the different vocations and areas to explore.
