Words from St. Augustine

..are you searching for a path in Life?
The Road Not Taken
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth...

..Two roads diverge in a wood, and I -
I took the one less travelled by,
And that has made all the difference

Robert Frost 1915
 
  Seeking the right direction to follow in life is a difficult
decision at any stage. Most of us, regardless of our profession
or circumstance, spend time wondering if the path we have
taken is the right one, or how would things have turned out
differently had we chosen another route.

Even when we have chosen a particular path or profession there will
always be doubts. No one is ever sure. Part of the journey and excitement of life is discovering and learning along the way. If you are restless and searching for a new direction in which God and prayer have a part in your life, the opportunities that exist are manifold. If you want to share your quest, the help and support you need can be given to you by others who are also travelling down part of this path.
In order to try our way of life you don’t need to super human. However, a sense of God in your life through prayer is important. A willingness to develop one’s strengths and a maturity to be able to live, study, work and pray with others is important.

If you feel such a path is right for you, why not explore it further, you have nothing to lose and perhaps even more to gain.
