Brothers in Christ
I am discerning the priesthood as well
Ive thought about the diocesan priesthood
and also thought about a society of apostolic life called the Companions of the Cross
Ive also thought about some active religious communities like the Oblates of the Virgin Mary and the Dominicans (if I am called to religious life)
I have a sense that I am not called to a contemplative order...
I also love studying and learning but Im not sure how that would fit... obviously one studies philosophy/theology... but I also am good at mathematics and have a bit of an interest in science... though Im not sure practically how I would use that knowledge as a priest for Gods greater glory and for the salvation of souls.. something to discern I guess!
Please keep me in your prayers!
Your brother in Christ,
"Sapientia est nosse Divina et humana. (Seneca)"
as I see you want to know all of wisdom on the world. I am happy for you. And human with out of intellect isn't human. So be both - good Priest and good Scientist. It's easy :). I also want to study Theology, Philosophy, Latin and may be even anything else :) - if my bishop will allow me.
Trust in God, serve him with your life and science.
God bless and I will remember you in my prayers!
frater tuus Attempto
