My Journey of Discernment towards becoming a De La Salle Brother

My Journey of Discernment towards becoming a De La Salle Brother

I would like to share with you my journey of discernment and growth in Miguel House of Formation since I started on the 16th August 2019.

Once I received the news that I was going to be given a chance to be an Aspirant, I felt excited. Despite the undefined happiness, I also felt worried and confused because I had never left home and had no prior experience of living in a formation house.

Before joining the Aspirancy program, I hoped that Miguel House would be a place that would nourish my spiritual life. My goals were also very similar to my hopes. My foremost goal was and still is, to become a De La Salle Brother.

Since joining, I have experienced many changes. I have become more punctual, attentive and serious towards my responsibilities and studies. I am gaining a lot of knowledge from subjects like Church History, Catechism, Prayers and Religious Life, Lasallian Studies, Computer, Liturgy and English. These subjects are taught by local Brothers and Teachers from La Salle Campus 2. Two of my favourite quotes is "learning never stops" and "Music is a food of the soul".  I continue to learn new things. I love music, sports and art class. Every day brings us new opportunities to learn and improve.

At the moment, we are learning about the lives of different Lasallian Saints which motivates me to be a better version of myself. The mission of the De La Salle Brothers is "service through education" this is my strongest motivation. I hope that I will fulfil the objectives of Brothers' life, and one day, I will be able to continue the legacy of our founder, St John Baptist de La Salle, by spreading the light on education among those entrusted to our care. 

I hope that my vocation story will show you that God still inspires many of us to dedicate ourselves for a much bigger cause than our personal ambitions and goals. I feel that God has called me to offer my life for his plan and to do my best to fulfil his purpose.

I urge you all to continue to pray for those who wish to follow the path of religious life and consecrate ourselves for God's work and glory. 

God bless us all!
