discernment?
mr. webster:

dis·cern·ment , n
di-sərn-mənt, -zərn-\

The act or process of


exhibiting keen insight and
good judgment.
Keenness of insight and
judgment.
discernment = choosing?
St. Ignatius:
“Its more than that”
St. Iggy:
Discernment is choosing
‘that something’ which
leads us closer to GOD.

HOW? through prayer :)


so there is no discernment
needed when one is to
choose between good and
evil right?

in that case,
it is indeed more than choosing,
as we know it.
but it doesn’t end there!

Fr. Tom Green, SJ:


discernment is where
prayer and action meet.
discernment is not only
making ‘the right choice’
it is also making ‘that choice’
A reality.

take note that not making a choice


is also a choice after all.
therefore:

DISCERNMENT is the
opening of one’s self and the
willingness to embrace…
GOD’S WILL
So don’t ever think of it
as your choice! Nah…

It’s GOD’s.
He knows better…right?

Your job is just to respond to this call.


So, are you ready to
respond to His Will?
