Recommended Reading for a Future Priest (1)

Called by Name: The Inspiring Stories of 12 Men Who Became Catholic Priests

This is a great book to read. It is really inspiring and shows how the Lord can call people from vastly differing backgrounds to the Holy Priesthood. I recommend this book very much. One thing to note however is that one of the contributors to this book (Fr. Alberto Cutie) recently left the priesthood and, having married a woman he was seeing for some time, has now entered the episcopalian church. Which just goes to show, I suppose, that we can never be sure if we will persevere in our decisions. Our perseverence very much depends on God's grace, our response to that grace, and the prayers of the Holy People of God (H-POG.)
