I started a thread called,"Discernment and seeking Spiritual Director" and I mentioned there that I have an interest in the religious life. Here's a copy of what I put:
So I basically put two questions in this one thread:
Ever since I was 11 (I'm 14 now), I've been thinking about becoming a nun but am not sure if that's God's will for me. I've talked to one priest about it after confession and he advised me to discern. How exactly do you discern other than praying and "waiting for an answer"? I haven't talked to y parents or any family members about this. Should I tell them? How?
As I mentioned above that I've been thinking about becoming a nun, I've also been looking for a good spiritual director. I've read the other threads about finding a good spiritual director and I think I've found one priest but I don't get to see him that often to talk to him. How do I go about that? I'm kind of "church hopping" because I serve at different parishes so it's very hard to meet with one priest often.
Please pray for me!
P.S. Feel free to send me a message!
I now know who I'd like to talk to about this but I don't know if I should talk to him yet. I told a few of my friends (didn't tell me family yet) about my interest in the religious life and they suggested that I try dating first before I talk to a priest about it.
What do you think? Should I listen to them? What should I do?
