Growing up, I only thought about the priesthood for a brief time in first grade. I was trying to live out my faith in middle school, but I never thought the priesthood was for me. In high school, I tried to run away from my faith for the most part. However, I hit a hard time in my life where I had to take up my faith again. I read St. Faustina’s Diary, which showed me how to pray and how to become a saint. After attending Belmont Abbey for one year, I entered the seminary.
