For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been getting this feeling that the Lord is calling me to serve Him, to serve His people. I don’t know whether that means I should become a priest, but I willing to do ANYTHING (literally anything), to serve the Lord and His people.
I think that since I have been in a “crisis of faith” for years now, searching other church’s and whatnot, I have FINALLY come to the realization that the Catholic Church is Christ’s Church on earth. I have, though, not been active in the Church; only attending on Christmas and about 2-3 times last October. I was baptized when I was three months old, and now I want to go through the sacraments and dedicate myself to the Lord.
I am absolutely okay with being celibate, and live the life of poverty. I’ll give up everything for the Lord. All I need is to finally go through the sacraments.
Also, what do I have to do exactly to become a priest, deacon, etc? Can I go into a seminary right after high school? Or do I have to attend a college, and then join a seminary? I don’t think I’d have the finances to get into university (or the grades, my average is 70-75%, 80% in English, however). Btw, I live in Ontario, Canada, maybe some fellow Canucks could give me some advice.
