This short film was created by Ascension Press to encourage men to consider a vocation to the priesthood. It's an excerpt from a longer film about the Mass and priesthood for teens called Altaration: The Mystery of the Mass Revealed. The 10 minute, beautifully-filmed video features the testimonies of two young priests: Fr. Mike Schmitz and Fr. Josh Johnson as they share their personal journeys to the priesthood. Many young men—and anyone discerning their vocation—will relate to these "real" guys who weren’t expecting to hear the Lord call them, but they did. And they had the courage to say yes. The joy and sense of mission they now have as priests is contagious.
