The first time I really felt called to the priesthood was during my freshman year of college. I noticed how much of a need there were for priests in the world, I wanted to give my life to others, I loved my faith, and I knew that I was able to at least give seminary a try. Now, more than three years since I responded to God’s call, I have fallen in love with the priesthood, and I cannot wait until my own ordination.
