I respect a man’s desire to consider the priesthood. I encourage it. Lord knows we can always use more wonderful priests. Don’t let me get in the way of that. I wonder, and I’m just wondering out loud here, why they do that though- why do men who are considering whether they have a calling place personal ads on dating sites and extend dinner invitations to women? A genuine calling to serve the Lord isn’t supposed to be a second choice… if I can’t find a wife I guess there’s nothing else to do but become a priest.
She has a point. Hey, Vocational Directors of various Catholic dioceses: read this, okay? Maybe this is something you should be asking the guys that show up in your office. You might be surprised that they are surprised that they should not be playing two positions on the field, ya know?
