Vocations to the Priesthood…
“There can be no greater joy than to risk one’s life for the Lord!
I would like to say this especially to you, the young. Do not be deaf to the Lord’s call. If he calls you to follow this path, do not pull your oars into the boat, but trust him. Do not yield to fear, which paralyzes us before the great heights to which the Lord points us.
Always remember that to those who leave their nets and boat behind, and follow him, the Lord promises the joy of a new life that can fill our hearts and enliven our journey.”
There are many beautiful things in life – family, friends, studies, work, sports, hobbies, and so on. All these come from God. He wants you to bring his message of love, joy, and peace to the whole world, starting with those you meet each day. By praying, serving, and becoming closer to them, you bring Jesus’ love to the whole world. Doing your best each day will allow you to offer to God whatever you are trying to accomplish.
Among the best gifts that God can give to a young man is the gift of Priestly vocation. As a Priest, you will serve God wherever he wants you to serve him, through the Church. You will bring God closer to the people, and bring people closer to God and to each other.
This website is to help you discern your possible vocation to the Priesthood. Your frequent contact with Jesus in the Eucharist, along with your daily prayers, basic catechism and virtues, will help you hear God’s call.
