Journey to Priesthood

Priesthood is the power of Olodumare delegated to man by which man can interact with the deity and act as their interpreter on earth for the benefit of human family.

It is normal to desire marriage and family. Just as it is normal to desire priesthood. But because you have this desire does not exclude the possibility that you have a vocation to the priesthood or religious service.

If you do not follow the vocation for which Olodumare made you, you can attain a certain degree of happiness in this world and still attain success. However you can never be as happy and successful as you might have been, had you followed your proper vocation.  This is why it is so important that you discern correctly. 

The discernment of your vocation is likely to be the most important decision you will make in your entire life!  Of course, there are trials and tribulations in every vocation. 

Priesthood is not for men only. Man and woman have different but almost unequal responsibilities in the Priesthood realm.

To become a priest does not take away all suffering.  But there is great joy in helping others find their path. The life of a priest is a very rewarding life, both in this world and in the next. 

Awo work isn't for everyone.  Know thy self. Check with your Ori what your purpose in life is. If not, you will be like a dog chasing it's own tail in the end. Not all can be discipline enough,  not all can be intelligent enough, not all can be powerful enough to sustain and honor the position of priesthood.

  1. Well put. I find your essays for clear, concise, and satisfying. However, I must admit that when I finish, I usually have the desire that your essays will continue on and on...Why? Because I learn, am usually entertained a bit too, and finally, I enjoy knowing that almost ANYBODY can understand, and learn, from your writings, too!!!

    So, thanks again Iyalaje, for your patience and expertise. Odabo ooo
