Why am I studying to become a priest? I tried to find life in many different worldly things hoping to find fulfillment. I hated my life, my history and my family, and life did not make any sense. But God was not indifferent to my situation, He sent concrete persons who announced to me the good news that Jesus Christ loved me as I am.  I feel strongly called to share the goodness I received, and for this reason together with the Church I am discerning the priesthood.
