“Through Him, With Him, In Him: Reflecting on a Wholesome Discernment Process. Sr. Anne Marie Lom, OSF – a Franciscan Sister of Christian Charity Spiritual and Retreat Director – will be interviewed by Sr. Cecilia Joy Kugel, OSF on the Sisters Facebook Live to reflect on her approach to guiding discernment.

According to Sr. Anne Marie “Discernment is not for the faint hearted!  Discernment is choosing between two good courses of action with the assistance of the Holy Spirit and other individuals. When someone tells me they are discerning, my first question is always, “With whom?”

Discernment is a communal process, not an isolated one. One discerns with a spiritual director, with the input of family, friends, teachers, mentors, clergy etc…

Seasoned religious help in the discernment process by observing and giving honest feedback as to the ability of the person to live the call on a day-to-day basis.”
