"The thing that made me decide to go to Seminary was the grace of God and the prayers of the people around me. It was a tough step to make, but God kept knocking on my soul and would not stop, so I finally gave up and quit arguing with him. When I first received the call, I was totally against going to seminary, but God slowly changed my thoughts into positive thoughts about seminary and priesthood that eventually brought me to the step of making the phone call to the vocations director. Even though I knew it was God’s will, it was extremely hard, but now I am happy I did it and do not know why I held back. I am going to seminary because I know it is God’s will for me right now, and whatever God wants will make me the happiest."
