Yes, It is true.
I am a Catholic. My Parents are not.
It's hard to have a desire to be a priest at 14 and my parents aren't even Catholic.
My parents have not stopped or talked me away from it. My mom is more supportive than my dad.
My dad wants me to have grandchildren and carry on the family name. My mom told me she would rather me do something else, like a doctor or something.
And yes, I have really tried to think about other careers other than the priesthood. But ONE thought, and only ONE thought comes back to me.
I am every become one of those careers, I will NEVER be able to say "I absolve you of your sins in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.", or "May these gifts become for us the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ!", or "I baptize you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit."
I do indeed feel like God is calling me to be a priest. I have talked to my priest about it, and he thinks I may have a calling and I should discern it out. But he isn't doing much since I just entered high school and have 3-4 more years of discerning before anything big happens about seminary.
What are your thoughts everyone about what I should do?
