HENRY MICHAEL STADLER
I always grew up having great respect for priests due to their love and dedication to others, but I never thought that God might be calling me to the priesthood until my first year of high school. I started to go to confession, pray the rosary, and take Mass more seriously; through this, God began to pull my heart to the thought of being a priest. At first, I was terrified of the idea of priesthood, but amid fear, God revealed the great joy that comes from being a priest, and during my senior year, I applied and was accepted.
