I believe that someone who is considering vocation is someone who is open to whatever God will ask. If its marriage, priesthood or religious life... God Himself will lead the way. The most important is to pay attention to Him and to the signs of happiness He will put in our hearts. Let me know from you at the hot.

Well my mom left the convent for my dad, who converted because he truly wanted to be a Catholic. Their story redefines the whole question for me. I'm considering becoming a Deacon, and would be interested in becoming a priest if they were allowed to marry. Ironically I joined this site because I would want to find someone supportive of my possible vocation as a Deacon because it would be her choice too.

I do not believe it to be positive or negative. I am attracted to someone who is becoming a Franciscan and possible deacon. This prevents me from truly getting to know this person because there is a deliberate distant from he and I . I respect that if this is something God is calling him to do then that is what is best.

I to thought I had a vocation, but it wasn't ment to be and I still have my relationship with God. When I first thought
to be a nun, I want to follow in St. Therese foot steps.
But the nun's told me to live life and have a relationship before I decide. Now it's to late for me to be a Carmelite nun.

I guess it depends on the person. I was in a religious order 4 yrs ago for 13 months. I felt it wasn't for me so I left. I'm still open to a religious vocation so I say "in discernment", but I don't feel called as I did before. I'm open for marriage or a religious vocation. But if I knew I was entering a religious order, I would not be on this website.

Personally I love having friends. I don't think it's healthy to shun others because I only care to meet the love of my life. Engaging in a friendship with someone who's discerning may just be insighful in one's own personal discernment, regaurding any vocation.
