Small Update

Tuesday, February 03, 2009


I have recently been reading "Witness to Hope: The Biography of Pope John Paul II" by George Weigel. Reading about JPII makes me open my eyes on every page I see in the book! I used to consider myself very "traditional" and I didn't really do much to actually find out what the Second Vatican Council was all about. Now after research and other things I am simply "Catholic". But that is entirely besides the point.

While reading about JPII, I started thinking alot about my vocation. Now I am leaning more towards the diocesesan priesthood. This allows me to interact with people more, to be with the laity who need priests. The only thing hindering me is the administrative role that has become a common thing for diocesesan priests. I want to go out for the people not the bills and projects of the parish. But all this is another way of God telling me that I need to think. My mind is idle too often and he is just trying to get to think more, but I leave it all up to him. I continue to ask your prayers for me and all those in the discernment process.
