The call which I had in my early teens and unfortunately ignored has returned and is reverberating in my head. God is, I pray, calling me to the deaconate. Now at the age of 43, I hope I’m not too late to be of good service. I am married with two grown children, and a new grandson.
I am at a 6 month (and counting) discernment of this vocation. It has only become more persistent. This is the first time that I have spoken of this to anyone besides my wife (who is very supportive) about my possible vocation.
“The prayers of the righteous man avails much!” This is why I come to you my brothers and sisters. Please pray for the discernment of what Gods wills. Hopefully what is echoing in my head is God’s clarion call (and not because I have to much open space between my ears)!
God Bless and thank you in advance!
