Fr. Paschal Yohe, the Director of Vocations for the Franciscan Missionaries of the Eternal Word shared in this episode that what he considers to be the greatest importance of being a priest is his self-denial, so that God may increase in the world. Father also talked about the influences of growing up in a well grounded Catholic family, with encouragement to attend a discernment retreat and to visit a seminary. He says those invitations played a role in his decision to enter the seminary to determine his vocation.
Fr. Paschal says its best for a man discerning his priestly vocation to have a good moral foundation and to live the life of the Church while discerning.
