First Sign: Desire - If God is truly calling you, He gives you a certain attraction, a certain positive inclination toward the life.
Second Sign: Right Motivation - To want to dedicate your life to the service of God and His people. To want to live the gospel of Christ as fully as possible. To want to share a common vision of faith and spirituality with a community of like-minded people. Spiritual, Religious Reasons!
Third Sign: Fitness - Do you have the ability to live the life as it should be lived, that is, cheerfully and generously? Somehow the life itself must suit you and you must suit the life. There should be a meshing of your personality with the requirements of religious life.
All Three Signs have to be present at the same time.
If any one is missing, the Church will judge that the person does not have the vocation.
The Religious Life is not a social club.
