I have been wanting to read this book for quite some time. When I saw that it was available for request on Blogging for Books, I jumped at it. As you may have recalled me mentioning, I will be going to Poland in July for World Youth Day 2016 Kraków so this book is perfect timing. Through the book, I am learning the history of Poland and Kraków through the biography of Pope Saint John Paul II.
From City of Saints: A Pilgrimage to John Paul II’s Kraków by George Weigel:
Discerning a vocation is a matter of learning the truth about oneself, accepting that truth, and living that truth. That takes courage – and courage was another of the cardinal virtues that Karol Wojtyła began to display in his Dębniki years.
I love this quote. I can vouch for the accuracy of claim about discerning a vocation. It does take a lot of courage and it isn’t always easy at all.
