Vocational discernment in the light of Saint Juan de Ávila

The rector of the Maria Mater Ecclesiae  Fr. Enrique Tapia, L.C. has just published a book on vocational discernment in the light of the doctrine and life of Saint John of Avila.

Referring to the book, H.E. Bishop Jorge Carlos Patrón Wong, secretary of the seminars for the Congregation for the Clergy, tells us:
“This work addresses one of the central themes in priestly formation: vocational discernment. Deepening this argument, based on Sacred Scripture, on the history of the Church and on the thought of the doctor of the Church, Saint Juan de Ávila, Fr. Enrique Tapia offers a valuable contribution to formators of seminarians and people consecrated in order to be able to carry out a good vocational discernment in the processes of selection and formation of candidates.”

At the following link, you can download a sample of the book and buy it:

The next 27th of January, we’ll have a presentation of the book in collaboration with the Atheneo Pontificio Regina Apostolorum. Pick on this link: Presentation of the book by the Fr. TAPIA
