To discern if you are called to become a Dominican, consider whether the following things describe you: you love to study and are a motivated learner; you long to read more and know more about the life of Christ and the Church, and you cannot contain your desire to share the fruits of your study with others; you prefer good literature that contains universal truths; you appreciate the many avenues through which truth can be taught, whether it be literature, science, theater, or visual art.

If these items describe you, then you might prayerfully consider whether Christ is calling you to enter more fully into your life of faith through the Fraternities of St. Dominic.

For practical tips on how to study from books, but also on how to be a student of life, hear from the master, St. Thomas Aquinas.
