I feel a strong calling to get married and have a very large family. How could I have a family and then take that first step of becoming a priest, when married men cannot currently become priests in the Latin church?
And beyond that, I feel called to be a prolific filmmaker and singer. I also feel strongly called in prayer to be President for 3 terms-something that is also impossible under current law (putting the unlikeliness of such a scenario aside)
I am praying the Rosary and other forms of prayer, and rather than getting rid of these silly ideas, these convictions are just growing stronger. I feel like a crazy person, like I am overambitious with some sort of thirst for power. Please don’t laugh at me, criticize me, or put me down- but please do help me to shed some light on this. I have kept this secret and I think the best thing to do is to get it out in the open.
Summary: 1. I feel called to both have a large family and to become a priest in the Latin church, which is currently impossible. 2. I am terrified that God may have very big plans for me that are bigger than I ever wanted, hoped for, cared about, or know what to do with. Any help or suggestions would be most welcome. I am 23 years old. Thank you.
