How do you know if you have missed your vocation?
For a little while, I was confused whether I was called to marriage or consecrated virginity, but I feel very confident, after much prayer and speaking with spiritual directors, that I am probably called to marriage.
However, I am very concerned that I may have missed that vocation. There are a few reasons I feel this way but mostly, it just isn't happening. The reality is that because of SIN many will NOT marry, even if it is their calling. There simply aren't enough good solid faithful Catholic men and women to go around (through abortion, porn addiction, pre-marital sex, contraception, protracted male adolescence, etc). It's simply a numbers issue. I want to believe that I'll be one of the lucky ones who is able to beat the odds, but due to a variety of factors the statistics are against me.
I pray everyday that God will help me to be at peace so that I am comfortable with whatever happens to me in this life. I am already considering adoption in the next several years. My questions is, how does one deal with a missed vocation?
