Discerning a Religious Vocation

To each person, Jesus directs His call to follow Him, to become like Him. It is an invitation to leave all things to seek God and be united with Him. In Carmel, one's entire life is a prayerful quest for union with God through hearing the Word of God and living in His presence – this is done in imitation of the hidden life of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

As Discalced Carmelite Nuns, we pray especially for priests and for all the needs of the church: for the poor and unemployed, the sick and suffering, the missions, and for all those who call or write us with their special needs and intentions.

In the midst of our troubled world, we are a presence of unceasing prayer – striving to be ever more united with Christ Jesus who "went apart to pray" and often "spent the night in prayer." We are truly and deeply committed "day and night" to a constant and earnest life of prayer which is the very heart of our Carmelite Rule and the essence of our monastic life.

On August 22, 2015, three of our sisters made their final profession of vows – the first professions at the Savannah Carmel in 50 years.

Some factors to consider when discerning the call to the Savannah Carmel include:

  • Age: 20 to 40 years old, or on a case-by-case basis
  • Physically and psychologically healthy
  • Mature and teachable, with good common sense
  • Drawn to a life of prayer, silence and solitude
  • Ability to live in community under a superior
  • Last but not least: firm determination and commitment to give oneself totally to God

Our Lady of Confidence Carmelite Monastery embraces vocations from all races and nationalities. If you feel you are being called to live this hidden life of love and prayer, we invite you to contact us either by phone or mail.

When it comes to fantasy football we all hear several pieces of advice. Don’t draft quarterbacks early as that position is deep. Make sure to get at least one top running back in the first couple of rounds as that pool will dry up quickly.Jadeveon Clowney Jersey Don’t ever take a kicker or defense/special teams until the last few rounds. What about wide receivers?

It’s no secret that the NFL is a passing league. It seems every rule change over the past 5-10 years has been geared toward the benefit of throwing the ball and putting points on the board with quick, exciting plays. In fantasy,Lamar Miller Jersey we are slowly but steadily seeing a switch to point per reception (PPR) leagues. This puts further emphasis on pass catchers early in our drafts. Some also view receivers as safer picks early in drafts because they don’t take the hits that running backs do and thus have a better chance at staying healthy over a long season.J.J. Watt Jersey Throw in the fact that in most leagues you will start three WRs and a possible fourth in the flex position and we can start to understand why the position is so important.

Antonio Brown will more than likely be the first WR taken in your league as he is about as steady as they come. There was a time when catching more than 100 balls in a season would raise everyone’s eyebrows.Brian Cushing Jersey Well, Brown has averaged more than 120 receptions over the past four seasons. That’s just incredible when you throw in that over that span he also averaged 11 touchdowns and 1579 yards.DeAndre Hopkins Jersey Some might want to debate that Odell Beckham Jr. should be picked first overall but that seems like a reach. While it’s true that he’s dynamic and a highlight reel waiting to happen, he has only eclipsed 100 receptions once in his career (101 last season) and the addition of Brandon Marshall will give Eli Manning another true receiving threat.
