Awesome Vocations Video: 'Follow Me: Journeys to Priesthood'


#1

I just wanted to share this well-produced vocations video from the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. It’s a great video, and I think it should be shared with everyone! :smiley:

From the archdiocesan newspaper, The Tidings:

The video, “Follow Me: Journeys to Priesthood,” features interviews with seminarians and priests answering the call to the priesthood from different walks of life, including a two-time Emmy Award winning actor, a business executive and surfers.

“It is our hope that, by watching the video, someone may be moved to begin an internal dialogue with God to help them discern a possible vocation to the priesthood,” said Father Steve Davoren, Office of Vocations director for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. “We want to portray ordinary men being called by God to live extraordinary lives.”

The 13-minute production focuses on what inspired the featured seminarians and priests to answer the call to the priesthood and how it has changed their lives. Many of the seminarians left successful professional careers to devote their lives to serving God.

I’m sure it will inspire many men to think about priesthood.

I’ll have to watch the rest of it later, but I hope it will help both me and others who are thinking about priesthood.
