Here is my longest one, I hope to expound more on it in the future.

Anonymous:  Thank you for sharing your journey steps into Catholicism. If I might ask, are you attracted to men exclusively? Will you live a celibate lifestyle? If so, have you considered eventually contemplating the priesthood? God bless, and thanks again.

You are very welcome and it has been a wonderful journey. From another persons perspective looking in, it would seem I am exclusively same-sex attracted, but that really isn’t the internal reality. Growing up it has been exclusively to women, but over time a different form of attraction to people of the same sex arose. I have not come to a point where I understand this fully, I don’t think as of now I can say it’s exclusive. Some days I get the feeling my “old self” of boyish pursuit of the perfect girl likes to hide in the background and arises at it’s own will. I’ll see how it goes as I live another day. As a Catholic I understand the full and beautiful nature of human sexuality. I don’t want to live a life that requires me to settle for my own personal, limited, lacking (not to mention sinful) view of it. So yes, as far as I know celibacy at this stage in my life is the best thing. In the case of the contemplating priesthood, I love the priesthood Christ established, I am grateful for it and will be open to it; However, I would not want to enter it as an escape or solution to a life issue. There may be a lay ministry destiny for me, or maybe even life religious, I guess we’ll see. :) God Bless.
