Could my attraction to this priest be from the Holy Spirit?


#1

I feel a certain attraction to a priest he’s very charismatic.I am not sexually attracted to him,but it’s like when someone has an attraction to their docter.Is this normal?I believe it’s the Holy Spirit I’m attracted to,he the priest has that something not physical,could it be the Holy Spirit in him that I’m attracted to

Dear friend,

Don't kid yourself. Many people have crushes on their doctors. Turn your attention to the Lord rather than to the priest. This does not sound like the action of the Holy Spirit. Stay out of his way for his sake as well as your own. You are in my prayers.

Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
