What are the signs of a vocation?

The idea that we need special signs usually comes from thinking about the fact that we ought to choose the way of life God wills for us. We sometimes forget that God’s will is also, and usually found in the commandments and the counsels, in ordinary events, in the judgement of conscience, and in the inclination of “faith working through love” (Gal 5,6). It isn’t strictly necessary to have “special” signs of God’s will , because there are normal and general signs of God’s will. God’s calling is not something external; God speaks within a person’s will itself, moving it to a way of life by which that person may draw near to him.
