Yes, it is safe to go on vacation as a single person. Option (B) is the correct answer.
A person who is not consecrated is called to holiness because he or she is not under any public vow to be holy.

An inclination to undertake a certain kind of work, especially a religious career. This is often in response to a perceived summons like a calling.

Option (C) is the correct statement. A person that is called to be holy might also be called to make private vow binding in the eyes of God.

They can choose to remain celibate for the kingdom and so become a single dedicated person. Such a person must be aware of all they need to let go of.

Option (D) is also correct. Such a person should carefully discern whether he or she is called to such a lifelong commitment.

Should carefully discern whether he or she may be called to a lifelong commitment known as a vocation in order to reach Heaven more easily. Regardless of marital status, vacations are safe. However, before doing so, the person should carefully consider the lifelong dedication that comes with it.

Many people are called to a specific way of living out the call to holiness in a state of life (vocation) characterized by undertaking a lifelong commitment by vow or consecration. Some, however, are called to be living witnesses to Christ without assuming a lifelong commitment. Others are called to dedicate their lives to Christ in blessed singleness but without changing their state in life.

The beauty and burden of the life of the single person is often overlooked in today's world, as the single person's life can have a spiritual dimension. While it is sometimes said to be the hardest way of life to live, it is definitely not meant to be a life of loneliness and solitude.

Most of us exist as singles for some transitional amount of time, prior to our discernment and entrance into the married, consecrated, or clerical states. For those who do not enter the more particular states of life by vow, ordination, or consecration, there is an opportunity and a freedom to give themselves completely in service to others.
