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 -

- when you're sad nobody posts here... Come on future priests! :priest:
- when you have a little card to enter your cathedral for free (during tourist hours visitors usually have to pay), "free entry for praying"
- when you succesfully manage to activate your fraternity to participate in a procession in honour of Our Lady of the Rosary (I'm on the far right by the way, almost out of the picture praying the rosary).

Is that the cathedral? I've never seen a cathedral so tall or beautiful in person before.

Yup, that's the Antwerp cathedral. Catholics here are very proud of it :-) You should visit me then, this is the full building.

When word gets around at your workplace that you are a "minister"...

I work as a cashier at a grocery store, and one of the little old ladies that regularly comes through my line--and also attends my parish, where I work as a sacristan--referred to me as "the Reverend" the other day in front of a bunch of my co-workers. And then, co-workers that weren't there have been asking me if I am a 'minister.'

And then I'm all like "Nope, and never will be. I want to be a priest! There is a difference!" hahaha.




Non Novi, what order are you with? It all sounds really interesting!

What sounds really interesting? I'm discerning the Servi Jesu et Mariae in Austria if that is what you mean.

- when you unexpectedly receive a letter from a Sister and can't stop smiling for at least an hour.
- when you shock your fellow students by not receiving communion during Mass (making a spiritual communion, but yeah, what do they know about that?)
- when the first thing you do when you enter the sacristy before Mass is putting on your cassock.
- when the second thing you do is laying out the vestments for the priest in the correct order, with the cincture nice and curly in the shape of an M (for our Holy Mother).

- when a priest enters the sacristy and greets you with "Buongiorno Padre!".
- when a priest sees you in cassock and mentions what a fine deacon you would be.
- when you didn't like that comment because you "downgraded" (last time he said the same but with priest instead of deacon).
- when a priest is comparing his Roman collar to what he thinks is yours (but it was just the collar of a white shirt).

- When you get the call from your spiritual director that you will be serving with him and you can't help but smile.
- When you're getting excited about your trip to the seminary in approximately twelve days.
- When you hope to be able to sit next to the Priest that will be overseeing the trip so you can talk to him.
