The Call to the Priesthood: Quietly Growing Within

(View segment from 5:07 to 6:52)
What do we need to be able to hear God's calling on our lives?

  • Quiet time alone with God.
  • Silent prayer is necessary for us to hear what God has in mind for all aspects of our vocation.

Is the vocation to the priesthood a tremendous gift? Why?

  • Yes!
  • Priests get to work closely with Christ “to bring glad tidings to the poor, proclaim liberty to captives, recovery of sight to the blind, and to let the oppressed go free.” – Luke 4:18
  • Through their vocation, God calls priests to bring His Love and Truth to anyone and everyone.
  • Priests literally make God present through the sacrifice of the Mass!
