And… why not be a priest?
ITALY | APOSTOLATE | NEWS
www.whynotpriest.org offers an innovative spark of motivation and help for young men discerning a call to the priesthood. Watch the video online!

why not priest

Rome, December 11, 2008. And why not become a priest when the world is their mission field?

A new web site available in five languages, offers young men motivation and concrete help for their own vocational discernment. The web site www.whynotpriest.org is currently live in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French, and German.

A Video and a Helping Hand

In a series of short, creative video clips, a group of seminarians from the Legion of Christ say why they decided to follow Christ through the call to the priesthood.  Hailing from cities as diverse as Paris, Seoul, Rio de Janeiro, Madrid, and New York, these young seminarians offer a message of hope and enthusiasm to other youth, echoing the invitation of Benedict XVI: “Do not be afraid to say yes to the Lord’s call when he invites you to follow him!” (Youth Rally, Paris, September 30, 2008).

Not only do they extend the challenge of inviting others to follow God’s call, but they also offer concrete help to youth who want to discern a vocation to the priesthood. The web page www.whynotpriest.org also allows young men the chance to send questions or concerns to a priest through the contact page, and to get plugged in to resources that can help them in their discernment process.

The mission of a priest in these times is not easy, but the promoters of the initiative are convinced: “Today is a marvelous time to be a priest!”
