Discernment: how do we know if we're making the right decisions - an interview with John Paul Meenan
Show Notes

Wow. This was a remarkable episode. John Paul Meenan , professor at Seat of Wisdom Catholic College in Ontario, joins me (and enlightens me…) on the process of discernment - good decision making. 

We make decision, big and small, every day.  One of the things I've found about the Christian life, is: how do we know if we're making the right decision?  How do we discern what's right for our family, and how to guide our young people to right decisions?

5:08 - Vocational discernment and discernment in everyday life decisions 
14:45 - How to discern - practically speaking 
24:04 - How do we know when we are working within the framework of reason? 
28:14 - What is the role of intuition in discernment?

46:51 - The need for silence
49:41 - Everyone is given sufficient grace to go to Heaven
