When exploring the idea of a vocation, specifically my vocation, I often get confused. I don’t get confused as to whether the vocation I feel called to is the one for me, because I know that I am called to be a priest. I am going to the seminary right out of high school. I know for a while that I fell away from the teachings of the church, not entirely, but mostly. Even though I have always been Catholic, when I started feeling the call to the priesthood, it was as though I underwent a conversion. I desired God 100%. The thing is, I don’t see my religion any other way. I want God, as me being a priest. Yes, if I didn’t ever feel the call to be a priest I would still want God, and year for him, but I feel like I would be missing something. Is it normal for me to feel that the priesthood will fill this void, this constant yearning for Christ? Thanks.
I guess these are some of the things you think about in the months leading up to filling out the seminary application!
