A priest friend of mine who is doing the same studies course as myself may be an answer to prayer.
I am finishing a Master of Theology degree, but am married and have 2 children at primary school.
I had not seriously thought of ministry as an option based on the fact that I am obedient to the decision of the Vatican that Priests must be celebate.
So why am I continuing to study theology? Like St. Paul exclaimed, "Woe am I if I dont preach the gospel!" I too, follow Christ and his Apostles.
With the introduction of the Permanent Diaconate (since VII- 2008 in my dio) he has suggested that I would be good for this role.
Could some mebers of this Forum suggest some further ways in which I could add to my discernment?
Thanking you in advance...
