Priesthood - Discernment
Every man goes through periods of his life where he analyzes who he is, what he does, and whom he would like to become. This process is called discernment. God gives us normal, everyday signs in our lives (like a desire to serve others) to help us recognize what is most important to us. He wants us to discern those signs, to add them together, and to make decisions based off of them. Discerning priesthood is not much different. If you are thinking about what it might be like to be a priest, then it's pretty likely that God is giving you a sign. The next step is to pray about it, to spend time asking God what He wants you to do with your life for him.
Discernment does not have to be a lonely process. The Vocation Director is a priest whose job it is to help men discern God's will. Call Fr. Scott Pogatchnik at (320) 251-5001 or email him at spogatchnik @gw. stcdio .org and he will be happy to help you find out what to do next.
