A Word on Vocations

Dear brethren,


I believe that choosing your state of life is one of the MOST important things that you will do in this life and so it should not be taken lightly or done with hast. I have done a lot of thinking about this topic as the coordinator of servers and a delegate for our youth group at my parish. I am often told by those around me that I “should become a priest” or that I “could have any girl I wanted”. It is proper in these situations to listen to the advice of my spiritual director and the voice of the Holy Spirit. Good decisions come over time and with much thought and not in the middle of the night (unless you are St. Francis of Assisi or St. Dominic Savio). 😀

If I am to be a good father and husband then vocational discernment is just as important as if I am to be a servant of God as a priest married to His bride the Catholic Church.


May the Peace of Christ be with you in this Lenten season,

I live on a cattle ranch in south-central Missouri, where I manage up to about 180 stocker cattle. I am homeschooled along with my five siblings. When I don’t have anything to do, which is not much, I play with my siblings, target shoot, and read, serve, rave in my thoughts about how the world is, and fill up Corey’s email with ideas. I hope and pray that my work in Fire of the Spirit will bring just one soul a tiny bit closer to God. May God richly bless you in this life and the next. Ora Pro me.
