Why am I studying to become a priest? I am studying to become a priest because I feel great joy and fulfillment whenever I see others accept God’s love and mercy to fill the void in their hearts. The truth has been food and light to my soul and I desire for others to experience this unfathomable feeling of being finally satisfied.
