Ok so coming out of mass today there is a man who is training to become a priest and I have talked to him he seems like an alright guy, quite funny and such, but anyway he was greeting people as we was leaving and when he got too me, he shook my hand and said something like “And heres the Holy Joe”, at least that’s what I thought he said.
“Then he said this one’s probably twice as Holy as me”
When my mother asked him why was I twice as Holy as him, he responded with something along the lines of,
“Theres something bout him, like the way he looks, almost like Holy rays”
Then my Mum said I was fairly religious and set in my beliefs.
Then he talked about Religion could be seen lots of rules and regulations and said faith sounds better as it is more about belief.
But when he said about being Holy, does that mean I have to become a priest, or I should become a priest as people think I am holy?
I mean I sometimes feel like I might be offending God, because I don’t want to be a priest I want to have my own family of my own flesh and blood, I said to the trainee priest and he asked how many children would I like to have, I answered and he said he wanted to have 5.
Now this kinda is worrying me a little as I know this may sound shallow or wrong but I don’t want to be a priest, I want too as I said have a family it’s the only thing I can think of which I actually want to accomplish in my life that matters to me, and the fact that he said he used to want to have kids is kind of worrying me that I am going to become something that I don’t want to become.
But by doing this I am worrying that I am offending God, and before any of you says talk to your priest about it, my normal priest is in South Africa at the moment and I’m not the best at trusting people, so yes.
So any advice would be great.
