Deacon Peter Steele is a seminarian for the diocese of Yakima, Washington. He is finishing his last year of theology at Mundelein Seminary. God willing he will be ordained to the priesthood in May 2016. Deacon Peter says his life used to be real mediocre until he said yes to God’s call to enter seminary. He says his life became a lot better after entering seminary. He says allowing the all knowing God of perfect absolute Goodness to guide your life is a better idea than just winging it and seeing what happens, so he recommends to everyone to really pray and listen for the Lord’s calling in their own lives. Deacon Peter says, “you don’t want to miss out on all the good stuff He has planned for you.”
