Considering all the atrocities which take place every minute of every day, we have a larger need than ever for real life saints, who will walk our Earth, helping to shepherd God's sheep.
Some of these atrocities took place right in our Catholic church, but as we know full well; satan thrives on such as this. He spins his web of poison to avert your eyes from the good being done, to only the terrible things, therefore leaving us all afraid to go where angels tread.
Winston Churchill said it so well, "Never, in the history of human conflict, was so much owed by so many to so few". Unfortunately, I mean this in negative terms, of course. It is true that throughtout the world and all throughout history, horrible things took place. These atrocities in God's eyes, surrendered many against the very idea of entering the priesthood. Lest they stray. However, straying is not what we are speaking of. We are speaking of those (unspeakable for years), who devastated the lives of so many. We thought we were safe in their care. However, they were mentally ill (sick) individuals who maimed and abused our precious little ones.
Unspeakable is key here, for these acts were unspeakable to those who were good.
There is no in between. You are either good or you are evil. Performing evil acts would classify you as evil. God in His divine mercy is a forgiving God, however, not everyone is forgiving.
It is a disaster to feel disinterested in the gifts God has bestowed upon us. In His mercy He has shed so many graces, one being the vocation of Holy Orders.
I always loved the way of life the clergy enjoy. To live to be a servant of the Lord, in my opinion, is the ultimate reason for living.
Every one of us is a potential saint. It is within God's power and it is a choice you need to make. God may call us to a life of servitude, and that may frighten us, however, it is a life which fills our minds and hearts, as we love and serve God.
To be truly holy is something we aspire to. We pray to be made worthy of God's unconditional love.
If you are called to a life of holy orders, go, undauntingly, and believe that you have been called.
