As Jesus passed along the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake—for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, ‘Follow me and I will make you fish for people.’ And immediately they left their nets and followed him. As he went a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John, who were in their boat mending the nets. Immediately he called them; and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men, and followed him. Mark 16-18

This passage tells us that Peter, James and John brought their boats to the shore, and then left everything and followed Jesus. The normal routine of their day was suddenly turned upside down, and they stopped what they were doing, and just followed their heart to see where Jesus would lead them. That is why is scripture passage is known as, “The Call of the Disciples” and is often referred to in the modern-day call to religious life. Our sisters in many of ways, did the same thing that Peter, James and John did when they were discerning.  Jesus called them, and they followed their heart to see where he might lead them.   

What about you? Have you ever felt a gentle tugging at your heart to pursue something you have never done before? A nagging feeling that just won’t go away? Maybe God is calling you to the way of discipleship as a married person, to single life in service of God’s people, even to religious life.
