can you ever stop being a monk in order to get married? what if a monk and a nun fell in love? what would happen?
Also, what if a person wishes to become a monk or a priest but has a lot of debt?
Not gonna happen because they each stay in their own monasteries and dont see the opposite sex.
Anyone who wants to be a monk, a real monk, in a traditional monastery, wants to go there to get peace and purity. They go there to detox the mind from the world. Some people have no attachment to the world anymore. As a man who wants to be one, I say women can be forgotten, and all that remains is a love of the mass and the only thing you value is prayer. Some people give up everything they could have, to live a life of holiness. When or if I get into a monastery, I will hold out hope of being rewarded by God, but if He gives me His forgiveness, then I can ask for nothing more. I dont care about anything now, except this. God is the only thing that can animate me. I seek to overcome my habits of sin, and that is why I want to go to an oaisis of holiness. Though Catholics seem to be weird or unusual, and some men who are not withdrawn enough from the temptations of the world will find nuns alluring and would hope to corrupt them, a real man will honour the state of professional religious people, and if one has the faith they will not be tempted with this temptation. You speak of what if? In the novus ordo is false Catholics and it probably has happened many times, but how are they different to any other whore without the faith? The faith is what they are supposed to have in common, but in their unholy union they destroy the very thing that draws them to each other, and are left with nothing. In fact it is only lust. Call it what it is. There are many Catholic girls out there who believe in waiting for marriage, and these are virgins if that appeals to some men out there, but in any case, I dont have these thoughts about nuns, and I would be happy if i never saw a nun again, if i were to be a monk, i would only see God wherever I go, and I would nourish myself on an interior life and an interior hope. Gone are the days where I hope to influence the world or the church, from that time on, I work on making myself perfect.
This is what those who are called to orders are like. They do not lose their humanity, but they seek to conquer it, and become as robots without a computer virus.
