“Vocational Discernment & the Virtue of Chastity” – Talk by Fr. Cristino

We have all faced the age old question, “What am I going to be when I grow up?” An interesting trend that has been developing among this generation is the phenomenon of growing up, but still not knowing what one is doing. Among young, practical Catholics these days, there is a tendency to be in a state of “perpetual discernment.”

In a talk delivered to a mixed group of teenagers aged 15-19, Fr. Cristino explores the connection between struggling to discern one’s vocation and the struggle to live the virtue of chastity. There is a unique relationship between these two and striving hard to resist the influences of our most unchaste culture may be the key in healthy vocational discernment.

This talk was structured to be delivered to the whole group and then as separate discussions with the girls and then with the boys. The audio recording includes only the first part of the lecture to the collective group.
