Some decisions we are never one hundred percent certain of; maybe because they frighten us or maybe the uncertainty of what lies beyond drowns us in doubt. The Lord’s call for me was more of a whisper, maybe because I was too busy listening to everything else. I had never done anything that mattered or that benefited anyone else but me up until this point. After two years of seminary, I have been able to glimpse the effect that our labors have on other people, offering them hope. In the end the reason I want to become a priest is simple, because of Christ. No matter from what angle I look at my vocation, He has always been at the center.
