…What if somebody made the wrong decision when it came to their vocation?
…What if someone felt the pull of living a consecrated life from a very early age and ignored those feelings (due to living in a family full of “Recovering Catholics”), got married to a wonderful heathen (:p) at a young age, and STILL feels drawn to cloistered life?
…What if this person was relatively new to the church (baptised as a baby, received into the church as an adult)?
Now, obviously I’m referring to myself here.
In all seriousness, this is something that’s on my mind ALL the time, and has really been bothering me.
Has anybody experienced this? What are my options? Can one get divorced and then, after a discernment process, enter a convent? (PLEASE don’t freak out, it’s not something that I’m seriously considering, but it is a general wonder I have sometimes)
