Vocation to priestly life is an initiative coming wholly from the Heavenly Father to be configured to Christ and His footsteps. Those who are called and chosen are invited to give a positive response with absolute and exclusive devotion. This call implies a transformation, a consecration and mission, a setting apart for God and His concerns alone. Sometimes, like the rich young man in the Gospel, many young people show a deaf ear to God's call. Call consciousness is crucial to understand the vocation the best. ‘A true priestly religious vocation is not established so much by some inner feeling or devout attraction, but rather by a right intention in the aspirant together with a combination of physical, intellectual and moral qualities which make him fit for such a state of life’. (Pope Pius XI, Ad Catholici Sacerdotii (On the Catholic Priesthood).
