Heres a bit more clarification. I was reading the wonderful book "To Save a Thousand Souls" because I have always thought about the priesthood (currently though I'm more open to it in a way, I feel more called to be a father or a religious brother, not a priest unless God hits me with a lightning bolt and tells me i better get to seminary :))
Anyway, my question comes from a part of the book where the author, Fr. Brett A. Brannen, met a man who wanted to become a priest really bad, and father brannen thought he'd be a good one. Well eventually it was found out that this man had dropped out of high school and in spite of having what looked like to be the characteristics of a good priest, this man had a lot of academic deficiencies that would have made it almost impossible for him to get through even minor seminary.
My question is, why would God allow someone to experience this call to the priesthood if they are unable to be a priest. I'm not saying God is playing tricks with this person, but why would God (unless its satan, which I find hard to believe) give them this desire? It seems rather cruel to want something your whole life and then find out you can't do it. I understand thats life, but to me it seems harsh, and i know if I were in this situation, I would feel like i was tricked by something or someone.
