I know God has been calling me to be a priest for two years now. I’ve been working with spiritual and vocation directors for some time now and I need to make one last decision with God’s help. The decision is: “should I become a Salesian or Diocesan priest?”

It’s a big decision choosing to be a priest but with God’s help I know that’s what I need to do to be happy and serve Him. However, joining a religious community is an even bigger commitment and I would appreciate all the prayers.

My family prays for vocations every night and for those discerning priesthood and religious llife, so I will remember you personally in our family prayers for the rest of Lent (and generally thereafter, of course).

God’s calling a few good men. What do you think you should do? What do you want to do? Hove you done an observership?

I pray for your intentions! :gopray:

Pater noster qui es in caelis:
sanctificetur Nomen Tuum;
adveniat Regnum Tuum;
fiat voluntas Tua,
sicut in caelo, et in terra.
Panem nostrum cotidianum da nobis hodie;
et dimitte nobis debita nostra,
sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris;
et ne nos inducas in tentationem;
sed libera nos a Malo. Amen
