-when old ladies insist to give you some money because you prayed the rosary so well with them and they want to thank you.
-when you just don't know how to behave when they keep complimenting you.

How about "Ladies, ladies, I deserve no credit for being so pious and praying so much. Well, maybe a little."

-when you always have to find excuses to go to church (what other people do to secretly see their girlfriend).
[/quote]I know this is mostly for guys, but this is so true! I always "forget" something...

I would do the same if the Church was not locked all the time.

- when you see a nice little village on tv and think how wonderfull it would be to be parish priest there.
- when even priests start to call you "Reverend"...

- When you think about what town you would like to be a parish Priest in.
- When your dream vacation is spending a week at the Vatican.

When you start getting invited to private masses (my seminarian friend was the only one to be invited, and then he invited me because he knew i was discerning!)

That sounds too much like you :P I always try to say they really don't have to, but sometimes you just have to give people the chance to express their gratitude, even if it's with money.

I never "forget" something at church, I mostly say I'm going somewhere and then stay away a little longer than needed because I went to church to pray.

I :heart: private Masses! I really like the intimate character. Just a priest and his altar, and (almost) nobody around. I recently had the opportunity to serve a private Mass in the great basilica in Lourdes.

What's that supposed to mean? :P I will admit I am terrible about flirting. I don't even mean to, and I never know I am flirting. What most people refer to as flirting I call making jokes to have a nice conversation.

And there's nothing wrong with humbly accepting generous donations. After all, us poor seminarian wannabes need money for tuition, textbooks and our personal religious items... :hehe:

I didn't say a thing about flirting, that's what you subconciously made from it (so maybe you have some issues with flirting :P). It meant that [i]"Ladies, ladies, I deserve no credit for being so pious and praying so much. Well, maybe a little."[/i] is something I can imagine you saying, but I would never. No more, no less.

Maybe you guys should start a new thread: Flirting for future religious :whistle:
But seriously, I know the feeling. People understand friendly gestures and jokes way to fast as more.

Oh, and for FP: -when you flirt with old ladies to get money for tuition, textbooks and personal religious items ;)

I would suggest they make a donation to charity.

When you happen to be visiting a different dioces and go to confession...afterwards the priest looks at you and asks if you are a seminarian...true story last week.

Sweet! I'm glad to know I'm not the only loser thinking about Priestly stuff all day. I can be quite deceiving. I'll be sitting there seemingly reading through a science book like I am smart and sophisticated, but what is going on in my head is really "Hm... I wonder how awkward it would be if a family member confessed his or her sins to me...?"

This thread is amesome. I approve.

When a seminarian friend comes to visit...you get into the locked church so he can leave a note in the sacristy for his former classmate (now the current Pastor)

They actually don't let anyone in. But I'll let you have your little zing. :P

Oh yes, it's been a while since we have talked so you don't know. I actually started doing algebra one recently and I'm good at it. Hooray for perseverance!

-when Father Prior asks when you will be visiting the motherhouse again! :like3:
-when you're sad the motherhouse is too far away to visit again soon...
-when you're so happy one of the fathers (and a very good friend) is moving to your country to start a new house of the congregation.
-when you want to visit it as soon as possible.
