Story: A Man Who Definitely Didn't What to Be a Priest, and Was An Unlikely Candidate (But God Had Plans for Him)

His home life had been far from religious, but then things started to change. He wanted to lead a “normal life.” But finally “I began to realize that there would be plenty of astronauts and scientists. What the world really needed were people to teach us about Jesus…”

What a wonderful article about this man called by God to be a priest. I admire the honesty of this priest and how he tried to “buy off God”
by making deals he would give to the poor if he was not a priest and make a lot of money.

Thanks for posting this. I pray for vocations .
