I'm like Voici, I go to a Catholic school, in my class there is only one "Good Catholic" and he's going to be a Priest!!!!
FATHER WHAT-A-WASTE!!!!!!!!!!! Don't take that the wrong way................ It's what my sisters and I call the.............. *ahem* cute priests............. that came out ALLLLLLLL WRONG!!!!!!!!

BUT- HERE is a cute story-
The third grade teacher at my school was going to become a nun so she gave everything away and went to the convent. There she discerned it wasn't her vocation and went back to teaching at the school.
A Legionary Brother was (I don't know what it's called...) like, interning (?) with a Legionary Priest at that school and met her. The priest was trying to tell him that he wasn't supposed to be a priest but he wouldn't listen. Finally, he realized it wasn't his calling and, at the end of the year, he called her and asked her out on a date!! They were married a couple weeks ago!!!!!

Yeah, it is a tad disheartening...I'm at a Catholic highschool with a student body of about 500, and I have one guy friend who actually lives his Catholic faith, and he's discerning priesthood. ^_^

Hey now, you all act like we're some kind of endangered species or dying race or something! lol, I'm more optimistic, I see a world that is being confronted by more evil, a Culture of Death and Sin (I live in America) and I see the Church growing! Just think about it, look at PM! There are tons of really good guys here testifying to their faith, and its not like PM is unique (in that sense). From an optimistic guy's perspective, you girls just wait. If your called to marriage, I'm sure some good catholic guy will come and sweep you off your feet!

Keep in mind that there are converts to the Catholic church, so what good Catholics don't exist, there will be more to come in the future. By the time all the good Catholic girls want to marry, maybe good Catholic converts will be around to sweep us off our feet. :hehe:

It is refreshing to see the faith growing like it is, especally in the youth of the nation. The Culture of Sin and Death (as Jeff put it and very well said at that) I see in itself is dying because people are changing and leaving that culture. It's just that society doesn't let you see that.

Take WYD 2002 in Toronto for example. There were over 300 youth (excluding shaperones) from my diocese alone. Over the time our group spent in Toronto, we met 4 other groups from the state of Minnesota alone. (My home state) Minnesota isn't that big in comparison to like Texas California Florida Nevada ect. but that is a huge showing right there.

Lady's and gent's we have to let God put that other person into our lives, and just let God be in control. Even take today's Gospel reading where Jesus tells those who want to follow Him and those He wants to follow Him. He simply tells them(but not in these words), "Forget everything, and follow me" or as I prefer to think of it, Let go, let God.

I don't know how to take that period. I mean on the one hand, either I am not cute enough, or on the other hand the Priesthood's not for me.

However since people keep telling me I'm meant for the Priesthood, I must not be cute. Oh well, St. Catherine of Sienna, pray for us.








J/K! :) :P :D I just love giving girls a hard time about that.

I personally have had a thing here or there with a girl, but I haven't actually dated or anything yet, partially because I'm not ready, partially because I don't know too many girls who would date me. :) I scare them all away. :ph34r: Oh well, don't blame them. :)

Quite honestly though, I find it hard as a guy to find good Catholic girls. I go to UD and we have a 35:65 guy:girl ratio, and it's still almost impossible to find a good Catholic girl I'd be interested in marrying (I say that 'cause I'm an old fashioned type of guy who wants to date to marry. :) ).

Oh well, that's life. And of course, first there's the Priesthood anyway. :)

:lol: :lol:

I would tell you that you were cute, but the whole six-year age gap thing makes it extremely uncomfortable and not very appropriate. Lol. But you're not ugly, if that makes you feel any better. :sweat:


The nice thing about not being very attractive, however, is that you don't really have to worry about people hitting on you all that much, at least not for your looks anyway. Chastity in high school is gonna be sooo easy for me for this reason - I'm not what you'd call a head-turner. Hehe. :sweat:

So you think...

In Stillman the girls that are really "fought" over by the good guys are what would be called umm er Plain Janes. And very modest plain Janes. So don't be too sure of anything.
