Benedict XVI XVI Emphasises Discernment in Seminary Years (Saturday, August 20)

Celebrating Mass with nearly a thousand seminarians from all over the world today, Benedict XVI emphasized the importance of discernment in preparation for the priesthood.
"Under the guidance of your formators, open your hearts to the light of the Lord, to see if this path which demands courage and authenticity is for you," the Holy Father told them. "Approach the priesthood only if you are firmly convinced that God is calling you to be his ministers, and if you are completely determined to exercise it in obedience to the Church’s precepts."
