Could the Priesthood be your calling?
Do you have a longing and thirst to bring souls to Jesus Christ,
the source of eternal salvation?
This video illustrates how a priest’s life is fulfilled in so many ways.
1.) Watch the videos
The videos are an important visual aid, and will help you appreciate the joy, beauty, and wonder of pursuing God’s will in a way that my words cannot convey by themselves. They’re only 5 minutes each, so there’s no reason not to watch them.
2.) Use The Guide
I encourage you to spend 30-60 minutes in the episodes and in this guidebook, ideally in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. A relationship can’t be rushed. BE REAL with God. Don’t just say the pious answer you think God wants to hear. Be real. Tell God the truth, reveal your heart to him. Tell God what’s going
4.) Outside Help
Don’t get stuck inside your own head. Talk to your local priest, a trusted spiritual mentor, or Vocations Director. Discuss what comes up from this series with them, it’ll help you clarify your thoughts and feelings and God’s voice. Conversation will help make it all the more real for you so that you don’t think you’re going crazy and to help keep you accountable to God’s voice.
