How long since you converted? Keep discerning and ask for help from the Diocesan Vocations Director, your spiritual director, and priests that know about this. Pray to the saints for their help and intercession. The accounting degree would be beneficial, no? I would bring it up to your parish preist again to let him know that you are serious and that you would like his input. And beware of the criticism you may face from others, yourself, and getting counsel from the wrong person. St.Bonaventure writing about the gift of the Holy Spirit “counsel,” writes this of a evil counselor.
18. The other evil counselor is he, who converts good things into evil. The Psalm: Since they have deflected evils upon you, they have thought counsels which could not stabilize; since you put them behind 43 etc… It is an evil thing, when someone says something, from which the counsel of Christ can be reputed evil; as when someone reproves the counsel of entering holy religion. Stupid, dangerous, pernicious and temarious is, that which Christ called converting good into evil. Of entering religion some say, that one shoe does not fit all feet; but religion imposes one rule upon all. If you say this, you are saying that Christ and the Apostles are stupid. He also says: No one, putting his hand to the plow of God and looking backwards, is fit for the Kingdom of God 44; and blessed Peter says: It is better to become acquainted with the way of justice than after acknowledging it to have turned backwards 45. – Dearest ones! I say: if one shoe can be made, according to which any foot can be fitted [informari], that shoe can be made for all. Anyone can fit himself to the rule of religion, because one way it is made for the youth, in another for the elderly, in another for the stong, in another for the weak. Whence (St.) Augustine says: “Let there be distribued to each one of you by your superior [praepositio] food and clothing, not equally to all, because not all equally fare well, but rather to each one, as there is need”. Whence in Ecclesiasticus: Put your feet into her chains and your neck into her torque [torques]. And for you her foot gear [compedes] will be as the protection of fortitude and the bases of virtue, and her torque as a stole of glory. For the ornament of life is in her, and in her chains the saving bindings 46. – You will say: “To give purgative medicine, not preparatory, this is foolish”. I say, that religion has purgative and preparative medicine, because one has despised himself before being able to be among those being received. – You say, that “there is danger in false brothers” 47. This is not said of religious, but of false brother Christians, not yet religious. – You will say: “Many fall”; and blessed Peter says: It was better that they did not become acquainted with the way of justice, than after acknowledging it, to have turned backwards 48. You ought not to fall with those falling, but stand with those standing.
