I Will Follow
February 3rd, 2015 by Wayne
 

Ascension Press has recently created a fantastic new video on discerning the call to the priesthood. The video is about 10 minutes long and is well worth the time to check out and for those who work with young people, it is a great tool to use in a classroom or youth ministry setting.

The video follows two young priests as they go about their morning routine and tell their vocation stories. They each tell about how they struggled with the teachings of the church or how they had no time for God in their lives until they each have a moment of conversion that causes them to truly consider the work of God in their lives. The great patience of God is on display and the life of those who are willing to open themselves up to God’s plans are well portrayed. These men chose to follow Jesus. Will you?
