"The discernment of a vocation is above all the fruit of an intimate dialogue between the Lord and his disciples. Young people, if they know how to pray, can be trusted to know what to do with God's call."
—Pope Benedict XVI, Response to questions by the bishops
of the United States in Washington, D.C., April 16, 2008
“A vocation to the ordained priesthood is discovered, understood and appreciated by keeping one’s focus on Jesus Christ. 'Let them prefer nothing whatever to Christ,' writes St. Benedict in his Rule (72, 11). It is the person and saving work of Jesus Christ that is most important in priestly formation, for he both reveals and draws us into the Trinitarian mystery of God. Priestly formation is, at its most basic, conversion—turning your heart—to Christ.”
