Father Michael Simone, the director of Vocations for the Diocese of Wichita, says when he opens his eyes in the morning he gives thanks for all of God’s blessings.
“One of my greatest blessings is that I look forward to each day, to the ministry, and the work I’m engaged in in our diocese,” he said last week. “It’s truly a blessing in my life to see many fine young men – high-quality men – who are pursuing the answer to one question in their lives: Who is God calling me to be?”
It is inspiring, Fr. Simone said, that these young men are contemplating that question in the context of the expectations of the modern world, of God, and of our local church.
“Seeing them strive each day is something that truly inspires me,” he said.
“What they’re really seeking is the way that God is calling them to serve him and you, the people of the diocese.”
