  • Curious; what other noble reasons? Career? Humanitarian work? Nahhh if those are what you had in mind.

    Uhm, no ... wanting to be dedicated completely to Our Lord, i.e. the proper motive for wishing to remain a virgin.  That doesn't necessarily mean that someone is suited for consecrated religious life.

  • However, there is no vocation for singleness and virginity because of muh career purely considered, muh research, muh enjoying travel and playing video games and spending time with friendzzzz cuz family life is 2 tuff 4 me, etc. You get the pic.

    Virginity is superior to the married life, objectively, when for religious service. Otherwise, it’s not.

    You're putting words in my mouth.  I never said it was admirable when done for nonn-religious reasons.

  • What it looks like to me is this kind of subject is too immature for you. You are saying “bro” and “bruh.” 

    Yeah, it's probably Croix again.

  • ... it’s superior to married life when in the service of God. ::)

    My point is that you don't have to be a formal or consecrated religious to dedicate yourself this way for the service of God.

  • St. Monica, pray for us!! :pray::pray:
    I accept Church teaching on Implicit Baptism of Desire.
    Francis is Pope.
    NO is a good Mass.
    Not an ironic signature.

    Interesting that you posted this.  I did not pray the novena, but I do believe that St Raphael had a hand in my finding my husband.
    How much longer Lord?

  • 50 bajillion dollar weddings, Freudian psychological compatibility tests, courting for 15 years to see if he/she is really the one, talking about every single topic to make sure we are really on the same page, meeting friends and family to see if I can get along with them, etc.

    Who the fudge cookies cares? All of these things are done today and most marriages are failures and unhappy.

    Where has gone the innocence of simply falling in love and getting on with life by getting married and starting a family?

    Why all the need for this superfluous complexity that causes many young people to stay single for years on end and end up depressed and unfulfilled even if they do get married? It’s stupid and flamboyant.

    ”My son will only marry an educated girl who looks like celebrity X.”

    Ma’am, your son is retarded.

    “My daughter will only marry a doctor whose salary exceeds 300k a year.”

    Sir, you might as well make sure that you keep your daughter’s room out of your plans for any future updates because she isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

    It’s like some sort of Quantum Physics equation or something.

    It’s not that difficult folks. People have been doing it easily and successfully for thousands of years with low divorce rates even outside of the Catholic sphere.

    The angelic purity and innocence of women is gone and most dudes are just as messed up.

    Man, modern culture really slapped the sense out of people. It’s like some sort of joke. All the while birth rates are in the garbage bin for everyone but blacks and Asians and divorce rates are up the wazoo.

    /rant over. :popcorn:

    This guy actually reminds me more of the "traddies" on Gab or Twitter. I'm not getting Croix vibes here.

    Also, Alex Jones is CIA and Nick Fuentes is a fαɢɢօt.

  • Singleness without a religious reason or for service to God in some way as a primary factor is insanity. It’s sick and unnatural. It has everything to do with both metaphysics and Biology. It doesn’t make sense unless the person is psychologically or physically abnormal.


    Wow, we got a live one! :laugh1:

    I think you have a distorted image of the past
