Mi historia vocacional!

Mi historia vocacional!

Mi historia vocacional comenzó a los 8 años de edad y mi abuelita es la culpable. Desde pequeño, mi querida abuelita me enseñó a rezar el rosario. Como cualquier nieto obediente solía orar con ella. Además, asistíamos a la santa Misa juntos los dias en que mis padres me dejaban quedarme en su casa. Desde entonces comenzó en mi un extraño interés por el Sacerdocio. Al momento de ir a la preparatoria y ver que todos mis compañeros hacian planes de su vida profesional, comencé a […]

Cong Vo’s Vocation Story

Cong Vo’s Vocation Story

My name is Cong Vo. I was born and grew up Catholic in a rural society in a small part of the Mekong Delta which is the biggest delta in the southwestern of Vietnam. My childhood was full of great memories of being a farm boy: working in the white rice filed, going fishing, flying a kite… I love nature! One day I heard the call of God through my venerable pastor when he asked me “Cong, would you like to become a Catholic priest?” I did not give him the definite answer then. I just said: “Father, I will think about it!” Indeed, I was thinking, discerning, and praying about the question during my high school. After my high school and long time in praying, I decided to answer “yes” to the call of God to become a Catholic priest.  I would like to follow Jesus Christ […]
