Vocational Doubts

Discerning your vocation isn't always rainbows and butterflies. While there are plenty of moments where you'll find yourself filled with joy, there are also moments of doubt that we'll have to work through. I would argue that these moments might be more critical and pivotal in the process than a moment of joy, in fact, they'll often bring you to a moment of happiness in the end.

Too old to be a Priest?

My brothers and sisters this is just the start of what I'm assuming will be many posts on clarifying assumptions that you might have regarding older vocations or vocations in general. I know I've had quite a few and if I can share them here to help make someone else's possible discernment process a bit easier then all the better!

And I was Rescued

I was so encrusted with salt, self-loathing, anger, fear, a bloated ego, and disdain for anything that didn't have to do with me. I didn't think I needed saving, but none of us ever do until we do. I truly believe the Lord lifted me up from this wretched life and delivered my soul and me to where I am now.

The concept of being saved by the Lord might be lost on some of you but if you permit me the time I'd like to attempt to explain to you what exactly I mean.

A Guide for those not Discerning (Part 1)

I'm a 36 year old discerning a call to the vocation of priesthood. I get a lot of questions every day and I thought I'd compile a list of the questions I get a lot and try and give you some answers or insight into what this all means. This list isn't comprehensive and really just encompasses the most popular questions I get. I am sure there will be another post made as I travel down this road of discernment. Enjoy!
