What I Would Say to Someone Who
Thinks God Might Be Calling Him to
Mark Glenn Patrick, Jr.
St. Andrew’s Hall College Seminary, South Orange, NJ
“To Know God: Intro. To Roman Catholic Doctrine” because the professor
focuses not only on the content of the doctrine of the faith, but also on how
we can use that doctrine to draw closer to God in our spiritual lives.
St. Padre Pio, because of his willingness to suffer as the Lord suffered and to
accept God’s will as his own.
In Imitation of Christ by Thomas A. Kempis
Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
Jesus of Nazareth Vol. 1 by Pope Benedict
I was humbled that God was possibly calling me to serve Him and His people in
such a wonderful way. I was honored that God was possibly calling me to give
myself completely to Him.
Being able to give my life as a gift to God and to the people of His Church. To
be able to laugh with them, cry with them, comfort them, and pray with them.
Before the Blessed Sacrament, meditating on the Word of God.
To those who think God might be calling them to the priesthood I would say,
as Pope John Paul II said, “Do not be afraid.” Do not be afraid to seek out
where God is calling you. Seek Him out with your whole heart. Pray.
