Fr. Jim Mazzone is director of vocations and recruitment for the Diocese of Worcester, Massachusetts. He also oversees the program at the Holy Name of Jesus House of Studies, and assists at Mt. Carmel Church in Worcester. He talked about his own vocational calling, and shared how he believes we are not experiencing a “vocations” crisis, but rather a “discernment” crisis. He talked about how vital it is that all young people – especially those whom God might be calling to the priesthood – take the time to quiet themselves and listen for the voice of God.

"When we walk without the cross, we are not disciples of the Lord." -Pope Francis
