Lord, You Called Me
Listen and Respond to God’s Call
What do I want to do? Who do I want to be? In other words, how do I discover God’s dream for me? Realizing the answers to these questions begins by opening our hearts and listening to the voice deep inside us—God’s voice. Once we learn to do that, we can discern our gifts, purpose, and path in life. We can respond to God’s call to action.
Based on his experience of making the Spiritual Exercises under the direction of Father Jorge Bergoglio, SJ, now Pope Francis, Brother Ricardo Grzona, FRP, offers twenty-one lectio divina encounters with God’s Word. Through the prayerful reading of the Scriptures, followed by reflection, prayer, and contemplation guided by Grzona’s prompts, we can begin to discern our path to God’s call.
Lord, You Called Me: Discerning Your Path in Life can be used as a daily reader for a self-led, 21-day retreat or as guide for meditative prayer whenever time allows. This book will also be useful for fruitful discussion in a prayer group or as a text for youth retreats with a spiritual director.
