So, I’m coming up on my senior year of high school and starting to realize that it is time to finally start taking my thoughts about a calling to the priesthood and do something tangible with them. I think I want to talk to my priest about it, but I’m not really sure how I should do it. In the confessional definitely doesn’t seem right (it would be sort of embarrassing to go from pornography to the priesthood in such quick fashion, and there could be other people outside), and after mass would be rather rushed for the topic, so how should I go about it?
I know I don’t necessarily have to talk to my priest, but I would rather it be him than some unknown guy (the mysterious vocations director–little more than a name and number on the diocesan website). Any ideas about how to start such a conversation? Would it be appropriate to send an e-mail or a letter?
