Recently, I had the pleasure of visiting a friend. David was in seminary with me and has remained friends with many of us from seminary, however, at that time, with prayer he discerned he was not called to priesthood. Since David just bought a new home, two other priest friends and I decided to go for a visit.
All Catholics have a semblance of understanding for the importance of priests and religious in the life of the Church.
One of the great parts about being the Vocations Director is getting to visit with so many people from different parishes, and interestingly, one of the most frequent questions I get (after “How many seminarians do we have?”) is, “When will we receive the new posters of this year’s seminarians?”
