I intend to speak about it to the vocations director, but I would also like to hear the opinions of others, especially if there are any seminarians or priests reading this.

Is it at all possible that this is an unhealthy obsessive behavior? Should I be concerned? Thanks, and please pray for me!
Congratulations on this next step! I'm currently in Theology 1. No, this isn't unhealthy behaviour, and I wouldn't be overly concerned, but I believe in always doing a good job, even if you are going to end up leaving the medical program anyways. God bless you!

excellent stuff sir!!
31 year old from the Archdiocese of Glasgow, Scotland. Having spent the last five years at university with a year in the middle with the Capuchins and another lay community, the last year has been one in which I have been on the 'applicants programme' for the diocese, and God has really been opening my heart to the prospect of being Alter Christus in my home city, which is riddled with sectarianism and drug/alcohol abuse, but in which the buds of the new springtime are beginning to bloom!
I have spent the last two years feeling deeply drawn to husbandhood and fatherhood - for me there is nothing on earth more beautiful than my little nephew - but I feel now that the Most Holy Trinity has led me in this direction partly to show me that this is the ultimate sacrifice, and on Friday I will meet with the Archbishop and ask if he will allow me to begin to be formed to serve him in this diocese. All going well I will be in Rome at the Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum) in September/October.

I commend our vocations to St Philip Neri, St John Eudes, St Joseph Cafasso, St John-Marie Vianney, St Padre Pio, Bl. John Paul II, St John Bosco, and of course St Joseph and the Holy Mother of God.

Come Oh Creator Spirit Blest
and in our hearts take up thy rest,
Come with thy grace and heavenly aid,
and fill the hearts which thou hast made.

Great Paraclete to thee we cry
oh highest gift of God most high
oh fount of life oh fire of love
and sweet anointing from above.

Thou in thy seven-fold gifts are known
the finger of God's hand we own,
the promise of the Father thou,
who dost the tongue with power endow.

kindle our senses from above
and make our hearts o'er flow with love
with patience firm and virtue high
the weakness of our flesh supply.

Far from us drive the foe we dread
and grant us thy true peace instead,
so shall we not with Thee for guide
turn from the path of life aside.

Oh my thy grace on us bestow,
the Father and the Son to know
and Thee, through endless times confessed,
of both the Eternal Spirit blest.

ALL GLORY WHILE THE AGES RUN,
BE TO THE FATHER AND THE SON
WHO ROSE FROM DEATH, THE SAME TO THEE
OH HOLY GHOST ETERNALLY. AMEN!
