I feel somewhat lost, and I really want to talk to a priest for spiritual guidance. I have this "idea" about a contemplative vocation.
The difficulty is it's been 3 weeks now, and the priest hasn't even called me back to schedule a future time. I feel like I've been patient. I've called twice so far and left messages, and I've emailed once. He gave me his business card during confession.
What's going on? I suppose the priest is really busy, and I don't doubt it. What should I do? Has anyone had the same experience?
Thanks for your comments.
I'm in a similar experience with the Vocational Director for the Archdiocese of Boston. I just reccomend that you keep at it, and don't let it fall in the cracks. But don't let it get you frustrated or angry. Also, take time, don't badger him constantly, put enough intervals of time between calls, e-mails, et cetera.
Keep up the good spirits! You might also want to contact some other people within your Parish. His secretary, another Priest, or a Vocational committee. Or try to corner him in Confession, he can't escape there!
God bless you.
