Some of the readers of this blog may be confused by the fact that this blog has stuff on the priesthood on it and the other blog I run has stuff exclusively on the priesthood, yet I have pictures up of my recent engagement. I want to go on the record to avoid confusion that I am not a priest, nor am I a seminarian. I was in the seminary, but not anymore, and I am discerning with my fiancee about married life. I work at a seminary, and I happen to work in a vocations office, with my full time work being priestly vocations work, but let me say again, I am engaged, and I am not a priest or a seminarian.
I do realize that my life is very ironic. Here I am, having been in seminary and on my off times living in a rectory, and now I work in a seminary and I live in an old convent that has been converted into a Catholic men's house. There I was, discerning whether I was called to be a priest, and now I work full time for priestly vocations. God is probably laughing, because I know I am. But God is good; I know I wasn't looking to be where I am now; it just was a number of chance occurances that got me here. But they aren't chance occurances, since I know God knows what he is doing, and I know I will be ok as long as I listen to Him and follow His will for me. I feel very confident that I am supposed to be doing what I am doing right now. And because of that, I have a lot of consolation.
I suggest you do the same: listen to Him and do not worry, whatever may come your way.
May you all remain close to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
