Maybe this is a better place to ask than the Reddit group. I suppose this is a question for the ordained and/or those with experience of being in a religious order.
For quite some time - maybe 4 years - I’ve been playing with the idea of joining the priesthood or religious order, and God does seem to be pushing me in that direction. My spiritual journey that led me to this point is a little complicated, and I’m still trying to formulate a coherent narrative for The Powers That Be, because they’ll expect that at some point.
The thing is, I’ve developed something of a heart problem over the last six or so months (rectified to some extent with medication), which I can attribute to an extraordinary amount of pressure I’ve been under since then, and to worrying about other people. How would that be viewed by The Powers That Be in signing off on my suitability?
