Pope Francis tells Sardinian youth how he discovered his vocation 60 years ago

2013-09-23

When Pope Francis meets with large crowds, it's easy to tell he's in his comfort zone. And when he meets with youth, its easy to see his delight. After an intense day in Sardinia, the Pope closed off his trip to the island by meeting with young people. He decided to share with them the story of how he discovered his vocation, exactly one day after the 60th anniversary of his decision to become a priest.   

POPE FRANCIS
"I want to tell you about a personal experience. Yesterday was the 60th anniversary of the day when I heard the calling from Jesus within my heart.  But I say it not to have you bring me a cake here, no it's not that. But that memory, 60 years from that day, I will never forget, the Lord made me feel strongly that I had to go forward on that path. I was 17 years old, several years had passed before making this decision, this invitation, became real, definitive. Then several years of joy and success went by. But also of failures, of sin. Sixty years on the path of our Lord, within him, beside him, always with him, and I want to say this: I do not regret it! Why not? Because I feel like Tarzan, and that I'm strong enough to keep going forward? No. I do not regret it because always, even in moments of darkness, moments of sin, in moments of weakness, in moments of failures, I have looked to Jesus and I have trusted Him, and He has never left me alone. Always trust Jesus. He always goes forward. He goes with us. But listen, He never lets us down. He is faithful, a trusting companion. Think of this as my testimony, I am happy of these 60 years with the Lord. ”
