Rafael Ramirez Salazar, a Columban seminarian from Chile writes:
I feel that both God and the mission call me. I cannot identify precisely the source of this call. It comes from deep within me, and I experience it as one call to mission.
I don’t think it is simply my own desire or curiosity. There is definitely more to it than that. It exercises a mysterious power over me; it draws me on. It is more than just motivation, more than invitation; it is an interior force with power to shape my life.
