Our latest range of discernment resources started as a spark: Director of Vocations, Fr Morgan Batt, was reading a document by Pope Francis, when he stumbled upon the word ruminatio - the latin phrase meaning rumination. The Pope suggested that discerning a call was to ruminate over it, to think deeply about it within one's heart, mind and soul. Which sparked Fr Morgan's own rumination about the call to priesthood, which in turn sparked Executive Manager, Adam Burns, to write about the "The Call of Marriage".

Further ruminatio are being written about the single life and religious life.

These resources are available as pdf's here, or contact the office to arrange for a hard copy.
