Discern a Penitent Vocation -- Questions for Living a Life of Penance (Conversion)
How do you know if God might be calling you to live a life of penance (conversion)? Why would you do penance (seek to be more converted to God)? Is there a way to discern whether you should become a penitent (a person more converted to God's ways of doing things)?
Are you a Roman Catholic lay person who is looking for more in life?
Do you want to follow Christ more closely with others who want the same goals as you?
