Are you called to give everything for Christ in the Blessed Sacrament and Our Lady? Are you called to love Jesus through hours of Adoration each day and draw other souls to love Him? That is, very simply put, the life and charism of the Missionaries of the Most Holy Eucharist.
Discernment has become very difficult in the noise of our current culture. Prayer and silence are absolutely necessary when trying to hear the call of the Lord. The Lord is calling men to serve as priests, but His voice is drowned out by the exterior noise which surrounds the life of so many men. The call is best heard in silent Adoration at the feet of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. He is the One who calls.
Daily Mass, the rosary, regular confession, daily personal prayer and scriptural meditation are also necessary to fortify the soul in grace and open the heart to God. Entrust your vocation to Our Lady through an act of consecration and She will lead you securely in God’s Will for your life. MSE Consecration Prayer
