[quote=UnworthySoul]Wow, seems I have a bit more learning to do. Thanks for the swift replies!
As regards marriage, I just don’t know. For a time I thought I felt a call to Orders of some sort. I asked a priest about it, and he kind of beat around the bush without answering me. Rather disheartening, that. I got the feeling he didn’t like my past military service when I brought that up. Anyway, he basically told me there were other ways to serve as opposed to Orders.
My next intent is to try and see if there are any duties I can perform at my local church. Anything at all really. Heck, I’ll mop the floors if that’s what they need.
Anyway, I’m rambling a bit. Sorry about that, that experience just kind of rubbed me the wrong way, and still rankles a bit. Thanks again for the replies!
Hey, don’t give up pursuing a possible vocation just because one priest wasn’t too enthusiastic about it. We need priests. Pray about it and if you believe you have a vocation then get in touch with your local bishop.
