Okay well this may sound stupid to some of you I suppose but I am rather worrying over this, I go to church with my mum and most weeks I go to confession after mass to confess sins and such but I also go to ask questions as I would call myself rather scrupulous(But I feel I am making some progress with this ). But anyway after coming out of confession there are some old ladies there who me and my mum have talked to before but not in great detail (I do not know their names).
But they asked my mum if I go to confession often and my mum said yes but he also asks question while he is in there.
Then the little ladies either said I would make a good priest or I might become a priest when I am older, and although maybe the fact they saying I would make a good priest is kind of a compliment perhaps from my personality.
But heres the problem, I don’t want to be a priest, I don’t think thats my vocation, I have never really known what job I wanted to do (I used to want to work with animals but then I got older and I now haven’t got a clue really) but one thing that I have wanted to do for a long time, I’ve said I just want to meet a nice girl, get married and have children raising them correctly that is the only thing that I am certain I want to do.
But heres the thing is after their comment I kinda thought is that disrespectful to God for me not wanting to be a priest, and also my character I take things quite literally and those ladies saying I would be a good priest for some reason I feel like I have to be a priest now and I am rather stressing out over this (Like I said it sounds stupid).
But like I said above I want to get married and have children and such I suppose I just need some reassurance from somebody saying just because somebody said I might/would make a good priest I don’t have to be one.
I think my vocation is that of married life, but how do you know for certain what your vocation is. I mean I’m 16 and I want to get married and have children is that also strange in anyway?
