IJCY5- “Your fear is from the spirit against Christ” – The 6th & 7th Spiritual Lesson – Is Jesus Calling You w/ Fr. Paul Hoesing ep 5 – Discerning Hearts Podcast

Fr. Paul Hoesing - Is Jesus Calling You?  Discerning Your Vocational Call 3

The Sixth Spiritual Lesson: “God does not reveal himself through fear, pressure or confusion. This where the spirit against Christ reveals himself.”

Questions: What are your ideas and images of God the Father and how do they differ from what Jesus teaches us about the Father? Do you see the Father as someone who pressures you to do things? Where does fear drive your relationship with the Father? Recall your latest experience of peace, stillness, clarity, and gratitude in God and believe that that is how the Father draws you?

The Seventh Spiritual Lesson: God’s will is found in your will when you are in Christ. “God’s will, His desire for you, is not out there somewhere! It is found in your own desire when you are in Christ! That is the will of God for you!”

Questions: Does the thought of the priesthood come into your thoughts, feelings and desires when you are experiencing the peaceful presence of God?

Based on “Is Jesus Calling You To Be A Catholic Priest: A helpful guide,” published by National Conference of Diocesan Vocation Director.
