How Do I Know?

Is God be calling you to the priesthood?

Think and pray about these questions:
  • Do I have a strong, personal faith in Jesus Christ and his Bride the Church?
  • Do I love people?
  • Do I love the Eucharist and the sacraments of the Church?
  • Do I have the desire to help people know God's love for them?
  • Do I have a persistent inner feeling that God may want me to do this?
  • Am I physically and emotionally healthy?
  • Do I have an enthusiasm for learning and studying?
  • Do others support me in this direction?
  • Am I active in my parish?
  • Do I have the gifts to serve the Church in leadership?
  • With the help of God, could I possibly be called to a celibate life?
  • Am I willing to make a sacrifice for the good of others?
