I had looked fora long time for a meaning to lifewhenthe Lord permitted me to meettheEmmanuel Community. I found there a living ChurchwithChristians who happily lived out their faith while respecting thetradition of the Church.
At this timeof my conversion, the only way forward seemed to becomea priest.I madea retreatto discernmy callbut I did not counton the ‘unexpected of God’. The beginning of myjourney helped me to understandthatGod’s callfor mewas in the world. I did not think that I could give myself entirely toGod while working each day,until theLord showedme thatthe work environmentcanbe a place ofsanctification. Being in the worldallows one to meetpeople whodo not know Godbut who have a great thirstfor love.One may work,but alsolisten and be attentive to the suffering ofthose around us. Thisis at the heartof our vocation.
