The greatest contribution to my discernment into seminary has been my many experiences serving at the Mass in the various stages of my life. Starting in middle school, some years in high school, the last year of college, and the last couple years in the Air Force, it consistently stirred my heart that I might be called to do more than to serve the Mass. And at the point of my life where I had the world at my feet, I wanted to know what was at the foot of the cross. And it might be the priesthood.
