    My priest told me age 30 is the upper limit.


    Did you tell your priest you are 31? Maybe he's trying to let you down gently.

    Besides, it is not your priest who decides such things. Each monastery/order has its own policy on age requirements and would be flexible in the case of someone who has a clear vocation.

    Will getting a better job deter you from trying the monastic life? If so, be sure you do not have a vocation. You don't forego the call just because you get a better offer. There is no higher calling than to the priesthood/religious life.


    Maybe thats why I can't find a job. Perhaps God did not bless me with a job because He knew I would choose the monastic life someday.

    Is this a novus ordo priest to whom you inquired about a vocation? In the novus ordo sect, many times, if the vocation director can see you're not a pervert (homosexual) or a modernist, but rather you adhere to tradition (which demands the question: why would you be inquiring to the novus ordo?), then he will deny you entrance to the seminary, monastery, order - whichever applies. Generally, they only recruit secret flamers, modernists, heretics and people who are false traditionalists who are easy to deceive.  

    Regarding the secret flamers, if the vocation director himself is a crypto-queer, then he'll most definitely know if the person inquiring about a vocation is a pervert, too, without the applicant admitting it. They have their innate "radars" that can detect others with the same grotesque dispositions or those with leniency to that abomination.

    They'll don't want real men who lead and tell the truth, and who will defend the true Faith at all costs.


    This is an SSPX priest.

    I told my priest that I had dealt with homosexual feelings in the past. I also told him that I had done a lot of healing in this area, and that I regularly have feelings towards women. Would this be an impediment to becoming a monk? I do sense this priest has a weird vibe towards me ever since I told him that.

    I was hoping for more than a thumbs down. So is it an impediment or no?

  • Traditionally, disordered inclinations (whether in the past or not) are an absolute no go for seminary entrance.

    Are you sure about a past disordered inclination? Where does it state this?

    I can understand about a present one.

    It will depend on the bishop.

    If he wants to pay for the seminary for an old man, and thinks he'll get enough out of him to make it worth while, he can do it.

    I hear in the archdiocese of LA that there's plenty of widower priests, who were married and raised a family and became priests after their spouses died.


    My priest told me the upper limit is 30 years old. I'm gathering it may vary from diocese to diocese.

    I don't know if I have a calling to this vocation. I am seriously thinking about it more than ever. I'm looking at my life now, and I am 31 years old and unmarried. Even if I wanted to get married (which I do) I do not have a good enough job to support a family. And even if I had a job and a family, there would be the persecution of the world to deal with. Which has been pretty severe in the past. If I ever had to deal with the same intensity of persecution that I have had to deal with in the past, then I don't think I would even enjoy my marriage. Plus I would fear that my anger would be vented on my family at times. Of course if I were comfortable in my job then there would be no problems. But my experience thus far is that dealing with people at work adds stress. The current job that I hold is not too bad, but I sense the same things I have run into in the past.

    If I were to tell you that my past is following me around would you believe me? It seems like I am being stalked by my past mistakes. People seem to know things about me that they normally would not know. And yes it involves jews.

    I know that persecution is not a calling to the priesthood/brotherhood. But these vocations would allow for me to get back to the same level of faith that I once had. I have not been able to get back to where I was because the world seems to keep dragging me down.

    Let me ask you since you were once a freemason. Do freemasons try to enslave people? Do they stalk people and try to control/manipulate them? I know this is off topic but I had to ask.


    EDIT!!!!
    We conclude logically that religion can give an efficacious and truly realistic answer to the great modern problems only if it is a religion that is profoundly lived, not simply a superficial and cheap religion made up of some vocal prayers and some ceremonies...
