Hello all! I’m not going to flat out say I’ve been discerning the priesthood, but I’ve been wondering if the call might be there, and looking deeper in to life as a seminarian/priest and different religious orders. As you might be able to tell from my signature, I’ve always had a huge attraction to the Jesuits. I think their military background (God’s Marines), missionary work, and traditions are awesome. They’d currently be my number one choice if I did look further into becoming a priest.
However, I was wanting your opinions on other orders that might suit me. There seems to be more orders than I can count, each with a different mission, so I’ll just lay out what I’d mainly be looking for and see if anything matches!:
-Missionary work in underdeveloped countries
-Disciplined and Conservative
-History of study and teaching
Thanks so much for the help and God bless!
