So, I have been exploring the call to the priesthood for about two years now, and it has been persistent as ever. I have taken online “vocation anonymous” tests, and I find my heart answering “yes” to every question they ask. Some of them even generate answers for me, and they basically say that I more than likely have a vocation. I sit at Mass and imagine myself being the priest offering up the perfect sacrifice, and I can truly see myself doing that one day. I can see myself saying Mass, delivering the Sacraments, helping the poor, evangelizing to the youth, etc. In the bottom of my heart, it feels like that is what I am called to do. Recently, I watched an Ordination Mass on YouTube, and it almost brought me to tears of how beautiful it was and how I want to be in that position someday.
I set up a meeting with the diocesan vocations’ director for this coming Monday, and I’m kind of nervous. What questions will he raise? What should I ask? Will this meeting help me figure out that this is my true calling?
