WOF 311: Bishop Barron Q&A on Discernment

Friends, at the recent FOCUS SEEK conference, seminarians and young people discerning their vocation asked me range of questions about calling and vocations, including:

  • Did Bishop Barron ever consider religious life?
  • How should we use philosophy to approach and interact with theology?
  • What should we do about a “dark night of the soul” when it comes to discernment?
  • How should one discern between dating versus pursuing a religious vocation?
  • What should women in particular look for when discerning a religious order?
  • How should one sift through fears and anxieties during discernment?
  • What is something that Bishop Barron learned as a priest, that he wish he had known as a seminarian?
