F is for...

Following

     Following Jesus, and staying focused on the priesthood is challenging. It has it's ups and downs- it's lows and highs. Surrounded by two different groups of people, at times it feels like i'm getting stretched out, and I know which side I like better-the high points.

      My high points are the times when I am surrounded by the people that matter the most to me. They are the times where I am surrounded by priests, and family who support me in my vocation.They make it easy for me to stay focused.

      My 'low points' is that when I am surrounded by those who couldn't care about my vocation. (usually at school- my classmates.... most of them) These kids I never hang out with (there are a lot) I ignore them and would, quite frankly, rather be by my self. Every morning at school, I go into the chapel to pray to receive strength-I feel Christ most there. I start my day off to free my mind from worries, and place them down at the altar.  I ask the Lord for strength to be able to follow him in my words and actions.
