After spending time in prayer and reflection, asking the Lord what His will is for you, it can sometimes be helpful to “guage” where you are in regards to your readiness for the seminary. While this is certainly not an exhaustive list, nor meant to be the final word on the matter, perhaps these questions might help you in that “gauging” process. Be completely honest with your answers. If you would like to follow up this discernment exercise by having a discussion with the Vocation Director, please feel free to contact him. He would be more than happy to help you discern the meaning of your answers.
