So, recently, after a childhood of fleeing Christ’s call due to anxiety and sprititual immaturity, I have, after a lenghty and long driven life of prayer, decided long ago to answer His call and become a servant of His Mercy at the Altar. I am drawn to the priesthood like a moth to the flame, though this flame does not ruin me, it in fact, burns me with ardour. I want nothing more in my life than to hear confessions, offer His Sacrifice at the Altar and serve others in a ministry until my death. I would like, if possible, other seminarians and experienced and new priests to offer me advice as I obtain a bachelors degree in Theology and hopefully, become accepted at my local seminary when my time comes to apply. What must I need to know about this life I do desire? What would be expected of me to my (Christ willing, by his will) future parishioners? On a side note, I find myself drawn to the old ways of clerical dress, being a young man, it is not typically found of my generation to wear the cassock or desire to represent the Office of Christ as it once was. Would I, a normal parish priest, be able to wear a roman cassock, fascia, Pellegrina, and birreta? (Outside the Divine Liturgy, I know. Nothing but the alb, cinture, stole and chasuble may be worn when celebrating the mysteries.) Always thought the shoulder cape was so cool. Made me think priests were superheroes when I was a baby. Any advice or prayers, thoughts would be wonderfully appreciated.
