I wanted to meet with a priest who I confessed to (not face-to-face) once. I liked the feedback he gave after each confession I was making, so since I’ve bern having a rough time lately I thought it would be good idea to meet with him.
During our meeting, I kind of just told him that I wanted to get married and I wasn’t finding anyone, and that I’m not really close to anyone. I told him I have 2 close friends but that they don’t like to go out much and I feel like I give more of the effort for being friends. I kind of cried also. He was listening, but honestly I did 't get much feedback at all from him. I even told him a lady I used to work with was older in her 40s and single, and she was bitter and not nice, and i don’t want to become like that … All he said back was ‘yea’.
I also told him I am kind of scrupulous and he asked how, and I explained to him an example. He just didn’t really give me any advice. He prayed for me at the end which was nice, but I didn’t feel better or get any advice from him. i felt like he probably thought I was weird or something, as if what I was saying wasn’t that important… I don’t know.
Has anyone had a similar experience from a priest?
