Missionaries of the Sacred Heart - Vocations

1. I’m not a ‘saint’, maybe I am not holy enough to be a priest.

Posted on 14. Feb, 2012

Some people think being a priest is about being removed from the world and distant from the lives of ordinary people. However when we look at the life of Jesus we see someone who lived, loved and shared his faith among all people. We can be as holy in life through our simple daily living as we can be if we retreat from the world altogether.

Holiness is about your relationship with God and living that relationship compassionately and faithfully in the world around you. It’s not just restricted to times of prayer, because God can be found in all the aspect of our life, even the messy parts! Being holy is about trying to be Christ – like in what we say and most importantly in what we do. We might not always get it right, but it’s about doing the best you can and being supported by our faith in God.
