I have been called


#1

i have been called from God to become a priest. i have had been calls for many years and i keep ignoring them but they keep coming back so now i am answering it and i am ready to see if God’s will for me is the priest hood. i will be attending a retreat in Connecticut on April 8-12. please pray that i may fulfill what God has in plan for me. and also please pray for my girlfriend because we love each other; we were planning to get married and we are finding this very hard. i know i must let her go if God is calling me to the priest hood; she understands why. God wants me to show how much i am willing to give up for him.

please keep this vocation of mine in your prayers so that i may fulfill God’s will. thank-you and God bless

O Holy Spirit, Spirit of wisdom and divine love, impart Your knowledge, understanding, and counsel to youth that they may know the vocation wherein they can best serve God. Give them courage and strength to follow God’s holy will. Guide their uncertain steps, strengthen their resolutions, shield their chastity, fashion their minds, conquer their hearts, and lead them to the vineyards where they will labor in God’s holy service.
Amen.

How amazing. I am praying that you will follow wherever God leads you, and that if you are meant for the priesthood, that you and your gf will part amicably…and that you will be a wonderful shepherd to many. Praying that your retreat goes well!
