My advice to men considering the priesthood: Be open to whatever God is calling you to do. You will never be happier than where God wants you to be. If you need help discerning your vocation call on the saints to help you; that’s what they are there for, to intercede on your behalf to Christ.

Why I want to be a priest: Ever since I was little all I wanted to do was to help anybody out in whatever way I could. A priest helps people every day. Their main goal in life is to get as many souls to heaven as they possible can in their lifetime. The priesthood offers the opportunity to save thousands of souls in a lifetime.
