"IF TODAY YOU HEAR HIS VOICE" "If today you hear His voice, harden not your hearts" Moses heard the word of the Lord and he responded. Where is God calling you to go? What is His will for you? As you discern God's will for your life, listen, follow, harden not your hearts.
If you feel that God might be calling you to priesthood, let the Office of Vocations assist you with your discernment.
