The answer to our quest for happiness lies in recognizing that what our heart longs for is Our Creator. Many men discerning a potential call to the priesthood have opened themselves to the answer: allow God to be the center to their lives. Excellent!
Yet a struggle seems to remain sometimes: “I know God’s Will is to place Him at the center of my life. But how do I know it’s really His Will that I serve Him as a priest?” Seek the answer to this question because God’s Wills to answer. Getting the answer, however, requires taking concrete steps forward including daily prayer, reception of God's Sacraments; and certainly, reaching out to one of the priests in the vocation’s office.
God Wills to help you find out if He is indeed calling you to the priesthood, and His help entails allowing His Church to formally accompany you in your journey.
