In Thy Courts-Vocation to Religious Life

Monday, May 5th, 2008

We have begun the work of scanning and editing In Thy Courts, a work on religious vocation by Louis Vignat, S.J. It is a sound and simple book on the subject. While at times perhaps overly simplistic, this gives it a refreshing character as a change from the complicated or confusing descriptions of religious vocation one often hears today.
Please let us know of any remaining typographical errors in the text.

Update (Oct 31): The editing is completed, and the book is now hosted at
In Thy Courts: Vocation to Religious Life – Introduction
Chapter 1: Jesus Christ and the Religious Life
Chapter 2: The Call of Jesus Christ
Chapter 3: How the Divine Call is Made Manifest
Chapter 4: The Struggle For a Vocation
