Here is a question that I have been struggling with lately, as it is my own current situation: Would it be better to get married and become a deacon with a possible vocation to the priesthood for fear of breaking the vow of celibacy, or become the priest and end up committing that very sin? Also, would I be damned by God for not following his will for fear of sinning against him in breaking the vow? This has really been bothering me lately, even to where I can’t sleep soundly or concentrate in school. By the way, I’m 17 years old, if that helps at all. It’s just that I don’t feel I would have the strength to live the single life. Thanks for your help.
