Under his sister’s guidance, Enda began to turn his life toward God. He even decided that he was being called to become a priest. Leaving his kingdom, Enda set off across the sea for England. There he would study at the famed monastery of Rosnat. (Though much is known about the monastery's history, its exact location has been forgotten.) At Rosnat, Enda would have learned about the rules and practicalities of monastic life.
