"After Much Prayerful Consideration..." The Interrelation of Sanctified Reason and God's Will in Deliberating a Divine Call
Professor Gurgel asserts that in deliberating over a choice between two valid and legitimate divine calls, that is, between “good” and “good,” we should make use of God’s gift of reason, the advice of our brothers and sisters, and the information available to us to make a prayerful decision. We are assured that God will bless the decision we make. Gurgel also offers some good advice for our choice of words when accepting or declining a call.
