The temptation is there to do nothing, to be tempted and to give into the temptation.
Lent calls us to be moved, to reflect on our lives, to change our hearts and to strengthen our faith. But we may be tempted to do nothing, none of the above!
Men discerning their vocations to the Priesthood need to be serious about not being tempted to do nothing, but to do something serious about discovering their vocation, through prayer, attending Mass, regular Confession, praying the Rosary and Lenten devotions such as the Stations of the Cross. They need to put in a conscientious effort to pursue their vocation and not to be tempted to give up or do nothing.
Kind regards and God bless
