That is the question a priest suggested that his congregation might ask young men they know, yesterday evening. (And not-so-young men, he might have added, since middle-aged men also become priests. I've met some of them.)
Today is Vocations Sunday. The Mass was a vigil Mass on Saturday, in Merrion Road. It was a church I'd only been in once before, for a special Mass to mark the feast day of St. Josemaria Escriva. I had actually decided to pop in for a quick prayer, since my bus would not be arriving for a while. I noticed Mass was beginning and decided to stay for it-- even though I was running late and, as it turned out, the priest took it very, very slowly-- including a long, long homily.
He said many vocations are pursued because somebody asks this critical question.
So...do I have readers out there who are qualified for the priesthood, but have never thought about it? Well, think about it!
