About the priesthood :
The priesthood is a great gift that God gives to his people to continue the work of Christ on earth in a very special way. How can I be Christ for others? This is what my daily discernment revolves around. The priesthood is a call to service in a unique way. The priest is to be another Christ for others, to
confect Christ’s presence in the Eucharist and to bring the healing touch of Christ to others. In order to do this, the priest must die to self so that he becomes Christ for others. This is no easy task. It takes years of prayer and training, as well as the grace of God. Despite the arduous nature of the task, many young men are courageously stepping forward to embrace the special call to discern the priesthood in the seminary. I thank God for all of the graces He has given me in my own discernment.
