look inside and see what's on my mind...

In a way, one might say that I am struggling with vocational discernment. A Catholic friend told me recently that she thinks I should become a priest.

I basically told her that in no way, shape, or form, do I sense that I am called to the priesthood -- partially, but not entirely, because 1. I strongly desire marriage, and 2. I use a wheelchair and am unable to drive, due to my disability, and I can't see how these factors would not pose *significant* problems for the life of a priest.

Still, this friend has said, repeatedly, that she thinks God may be calling me to something other than what I think or currently want, and that that "something" may well be the priesthood.

A priest also told me recently, in the confessional, that he thinks God is going to do great things with my mind and understanding. What does that mean though? It could just mean leaving comments on blogs that might help one or two people... and recently in my life, that is as good as it's gotten, seemingly! Ughh... wisdom and direction needed...
