From someone who has been there.
There is nothing that devastates you like being rejected by a vocations committee. You made yourself completely open and vulnerable, only to be rejected for some reasons that are never quite explained to you, short of vague lines like “we have concerns” or “you are not what we are looking for” or “perhaps you should seek counseling”.
Goodbye Good Men, indeed.
Three things should be kept in mind with all of this. First, it is not you, it is them. In my experience, I never understood what “many are called, few are chosen” truly meant until it became clear that God calls, but it is mere men and women who will do the choosing. They have agendas, and if you do not fit in, then you will be blackballed. Accept this - do not even think of taking this to the bishop. He does not care.
Second, you did nothing wrong. If they rejected you, it was them - and they will answer to God for it some day. You need to move on. And remember - do not leave the Church because of them. I know someone who posted here once who did just that after being rejected by his deacon program so close to ordination (and was hurt further by a cruel comment on this board - you know who you are). It is heartbreaking, and I can see why he did leave. But do not do the same - stay for Jesus Christ, and stay in spite of them.
Third, do not let the phrase, “Well! There are two sides to every story!” get to you. As I always respond, “Yes, there is - and if you ever find out what the other side is, then do tell me”. When you are rejected, they will never tell you exactly why - but you know why.
You are a good person, a decent person, and someone loved by God. Your worth is not measured by what other say, and GOD HAS NOT REJECTED YOU! Chin up, shoulders back, and look ahead (never looking back). Today is a new day, and tomorrow holds promise.
