I am just wondering, are there many men out there that think God may be calling them to the priesthood, that realize they are a pretty quiet person and not exactly a people person, and still end out being good diocesan priests? I realize that diocesan priests have to be, or at least SHOULD be, pretty good with people and comfortable with talking to “everyone.” I think I have such a problem - I am pretty quiet and it takes me awhile to feel comfortable around most people. I am pretty sure that if God is calling me to the priesthood, this would be somewhat of a large obstacle to overcome.
It is kind of bugging me, and I kind of need some encouragement.
I visited my diocesan vocations director, and he discussed the possibility that this fact could mean that I am called to some type of religious life other than a diocesan priest. I realize this may be a possibility, but still, I would like to find out if many current diocesan priests and/or current seminarians have had to overcome this. Any advice?
