Who Influenced/Inspired you to Priesthood: The work I did in my parish as well as my philosophical and theological studies inspired me to the priesthood.

What would you say to a young man who thinks he may have a vocation: I would tell the young man who has vocational concerns that he must discern and have clear intentions for why he should be a priest. In addition, he must understand well the commitment and responsibility required to consecrate one’s life to God. Therefore, prayer, clarity and honesty with God and with self are very important.
