Each vocation is a call to follow Christ closely. Moreover, in this life a person often enters into indissoluble bonds which God desires to see respected after the fact. Our future is not a maze, in which we must guess at the only right path to lead us to the only right destination. List of the Week: Learn Latin Roots! To become a priest, you need to feel that you have been “called” to the ministry directly by God. It is a call to know, love and serve the Lord. In other words, we have to believe that God knows more than we do about what will make us truly happy. We match communities with active, qualified vocation discerner. And thus we arrive at conclusions which agree with those of Cornelius à Lapide in his commentary on the seventh chapter of I Corinthians, and which recommend themselves by their very simplicity. If God leaves a free choice to the person called, he leaves none to those whose duty it is to advise; those spiritual directors or confessors who treat lightly a matter of such importance, or do not answer according to the spirit of Christ and the Church, incur a grave responsibility.
