From his years of experience as a seminarian, priest, vocation director and seminary vice-rector, Fr. Brannen shares his rare insight into vocational discernment, seminary life and the priesthood in our modern world. This lecture is a gift to someone faced with the difficult issue of discerning their vocation.
