My advice to men considering the priesthood: God only asks that we be open and try to listen to Him. He is never outdone in generosity, so always seek to discern and follow His will. It’s okay if you are unsure, simply do your best according to what He wants and He will guide you.
Why I want to be a Priest: I want to be a priest primarily because I believe God is calling me to be one. I want to do whatever He wants from me, and I think He wants me to be a priest for Him. If this is His will, then the priesthood will be what makes me happiest in this life and is the most fruitful for myself and His plan.
Hobbies & Interests: I like to play sports – especially basketball; play video games, watch movies, joke around with friends, and pray.
Influences: The Holy Spirit through spiritual reading and friends and family supporting me all the way.
