Hey there everyone,
Warning, this goes all around and out of order.
Well, I’ve been feeling a call to priesthood for a long time now. (I’m 16 right now) But I believe I started listening to it since about one year ago.
I just feel like God is leaving me a bread crumb trail for me to follow. I’ve been with the Church ever since I was born. When I was little, I celebrated a Pretend-Mass in my house using crackers. My Godfather attended the Pretend-Mass and now he is in his 5th (I think) year of seminary. I’ve been around religious people all my life and have been told constantly if I wanted to be a priest. My other Godfather owns a Catholic store. People randomly grab me and tell me I’m going to be a great priest when I grow up. I just laugh when they tell me this. And tell them, “We’ll see…”
I’ve been going to a Vocationist Fathers (S.D.V.) Parish since I was a little kid.
I go to a Benedictine High School (St. Benedict’s Prep) and work a lot with the monks and the Catholic side of the school. My best friend (who goes to the same school, we’re both Juniors) is also discerning priesthood. We got 3 future seminarians in the school too.
But the thing is, I really want to get married and have a family. If God does call me to the married life, I will still be close to the Church. So yeah, I’m a little all over the place.
The orders that interest me are: Diocesan, Vocationist, Benedictine, and Marian.
So that’s kinda my story, can you guys help me? Prayers would also help!
