I am in a bit of a flux right now. I am discerning a vocation to the priesthood with the hopes of being ordained and then entering the military chaplaincy. But I am caught in debate with myself. The diocesan priesthood it easier to be a military chaplain if you want. With the Jesuits, they seem to be the smartest and I have a great affinity for Ignation spirtuality. With the Dominicans, let's face it, they have awesome robes. But apart from that, I feel Dominicans have retained more of the antiquity of the Church (in terms of liturgy, etc.(although so has the Jesuits))
Any helpful advice/red flags/arrow signs are appreciated.
Boy, you are a programmed person.
Dont you leave something, I mean, a tiny little bit, for God to program?
Jesuits? Forget about plans! You must obey! If they say to you: "Go to China, tomorrow!" You go to China tomorrow. Or the slums of Calcutta. Or the Vatican. Or the United Nations.
Dominican for robes? Better go to Yves St-Laurent, Paris, France, Europe. They will make a Dominican robe 5 stars...
Parish Priest and Chaplain? Only if the Parish is in the middle of a Military base !!!
Sorry, as a person related to the 3, I could not be of more help.
Sorry, that is what I think: you should review the Your Program, which is full of virus...
What about letting God do the planning?
Tell you, He is a smart Programmer...
