The life for me?

young Jesuit catches a moment of reflection in an airport

How will I know if I am called?

If you have a vocation to the Society, then it is likely that either now or in the future you will:

  • feel somewhat dissatisfied with what you are currently doing
  • have a desire to do more for Christ
  • find in your past indications that this may be a life to which you are suited
  • recall having had a strong, perhaps unsought for, sense that this life is for you


  • when peaceful in prayer and close to Christ, have felt an attraction to it
  • find in the story of St. Ignatius echoes of your own life
  • experience some resistance to pursuing this idea
