Vocation Recruiter’s View

God, in His great love, always speaks to us. God wants us to know Him, be close to Him, and will tell us the vocation He created us for. One would think that a man praying about priesthood would readily hear God’s voice telling him to go to the seminary. Psalm 46 says, “Be still and know that I am God.” Discernment for priesthood takes several years, and nothing is ever rushed. Discernment requires that the man be open and transparent in truth before his formators, bishop and vocation recruiter. Most of all, discernment means a man must listen as God speaks in the quiet stillness of prayer.
