My secret dream...

is to be a priest.

I once saw an image of a bunch of young seminarians in Italy walking down the street with the black robes flapping in the breeze, and thought to myself, I want to be that.

I saw a picture in the paper, once, of Catholic priests getting ordained, lying flat out on the floor of the sanctuary

and thought to myself,

I want to be that.

But the strange part is that I don't want to be a woman priest.

I am a woman. A mom. A wife. A student of Jesus. A disciple.

I am not a priest.

But I can dream.

Why not study theology? Go back to night school. Get the training and see where God leads you. I did. It was well worth it. Actually, it was thrilling!
