So, I was in Church today praying the Rosary after Mass. All of a sudden, this man came up to me, interrupted me, and said:
“Hello, I couldn’t help noticing you beside me on the communion rail earlier (at Mass). Would you consider a vocation to the priesthood?”
He then told me that he’s a religious brother ‘recruiting’ people to the priesthood. I responded by saying that I’m not thinking about it at the moment. I wasn’t really expecting this (especially while praying) and didn’t really enter into a discussion with the guy. He left shortly after. I really didn’t know what to say!
I was just wondering, does this happen, as far as you’re aware? Do people approach you in Church asking if you’re interested in a vocation (at the most inappropriate times, I should add)?
Needless to say, I couldn’t focus for the remaining part of the Rosary after he left. What if today was a Sign?
I should have asked for his business card or contact details just in case, I guess. I was just taken aback by this whole thing and wasn’t really ready to interact with this person.
