men and women to continue his mission through
Your priesthood, diaconate, religious life and lay ministry.
WHAT WILL YOU DO WITH YOUR LIFE?
If you are wondering what to do with your life,
if you feel you want to do something really great with it,
if you don't want to fall into a conventional, self-centered existence,
if you want to help other people in the deepest way possible,
where they most need help,
then think about the service of the Gospel in the priesthood.
If you become a priest,
you will never be rich,
you will have to give up the love of a spouse
for the love of everyone you meet;
you will have to give up your family commitments;
you will often be on the move;
you will never have a mortgage;
you will be under obedience to the leader of the Church
just as Jesus was obedient to the will of the Father.
But if you are faithful to the ideal of the priesthood,
you will have the deep happiness
which Jesus gives to those who are His friends.
One last thing:
you don't have to be perfect to think of being a priest.
Jesus chooses ordinary people, not moral heroes.
You just have to want to serve Him;
He will give you the rest in due course.
