Item Description...
Clarifies the whole subject of religious vocation and is in complete accord with the teaching of St. Thomas Aquinas and "the unanimus opinion of the Fathers of the Church." Deals primarily with vocations to the religious life, but also gives the classic guidelines on priestly vocations. Will be very surprising, but extremely liberating to many generous souls wanting to explore a supernatural religious vocaiton. Says that religious vocation is "not uncommon, rare or extraordinary" and that it does not require an introspectivce search for some "special voice" or attraction. Greatly needed today; provides intelligent guidance for spiritual directors and for those considering the religious life or the priesthood. A much-needed book for our time!

Publishers Description
The question of discerning a vocation is agonized over by many generous young Catholics today. A solid Thomist, who wrote this book in 1961, Father Butler shows that this type of question shows a totally wrong approach to a religious vocation - an approach that began with misguided theology in the 20th century, which then trickled down to the popular level, confusing both aspirants and spiritual directors. Though Fr. Butler deals primarily with vocations to the religious life, he also gives the classic guidelines on priestly vocations. The author states, based on the tradition of the Church, that religious vocation is not uncommon, rare or extraordinary and that it does not require an introspective search for some special voice or attraction. This book provides welcome, intelligent guidance both for spiritual directors and for those considering the religious life or that of the priesthood
