Religious Vocations

“Growth in love does not happen without difficulties. Because man is burdened by sin and its consequences, he cannot follow the way of love of Christ without struggle, purification, renunciation and self-denial. He must completely re-orient himself and convert to Jesus throughout his entire life.”

 St Bernard of  Clairvaux
