I first started to think about the priesthood during Masses at my church. For a long time, over a year, I tried to run away from what God kept putting into my heart. The night of the senior retreat at my Catholic high school, I had a moment during Adoration where I decided to reach out and talk to one of my teachers, who was a former seminarian. I then continued on to Texas A&M, where the liturgy helped me to grow in my relationship with Christ and to trust him enough to follow him to seminary.
