What is Vocation?
What should I do with my life? 
Is God calling me? 

These are the questions on many hearts. This video aims to give you some ideas of what Vocation is, that would guide you to find the answers. 
In general there are three different calls (vocation) we all have: 
In the broadest sense God calls all men to be, of which we share with all things that exist.  
Second, God calls men to holiness, that is that calling to eternal life. We share this calling with all men. 
Third, there is a calling to a particular state of life, in order to live a life of perfection.

What is Spiritual Exercise?

St. Ignatius gave us this definition: by this name of Spiritual Exercise is meant every way of examining one's conscience, of meditating, of contemplating, of praying vocally and mentally, and of performing other spiritual actions. For as strolling, walking and running are bodily exercises, so every way of preparing and disposing the soul to rid itself of all the disordered tendencies, and, after it is rid, to seek and find the Divine Will as to the management of one's life for the salvation of the soul, is called a Spiritual Exercise.

The aim of Spiritual Exercise

Spiritual Exercise aims for our sanctification. Through conquering oneself, reforming one's life, through living in grace, achieve a closer union with Jesus, and thus the santification of soul. We need to convince ourselves: that we have to become a saint. This entails not only the knowledge of a life in holiness, but to actually live it out. In order to attain this goal we must make a firm decision: I want to live a holy life. To do a Spiritual Exercise gives ourselves a chance to effectively work for our own salvation and sanctity.
