I really like the "you know you are a future nun" topic, but I think it's more appropriate for me to start a new one for the discerning guys here :-) So: You know you are a future priest when -

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).

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

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.

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!)

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:

They would never give it to me. They don't like people going in there.

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.
