Dear mothers,
Christ is Risen! Please pray for me to discern God’s will for my life. In my heart, I desire a life of celibacy and dedication to Christ in prayer, service, and contemplation. Everyone tells me things like “when you get married” or “you will get married to a good man and have children”, etc. I begin to cry when I hear these now. I try to desire things in the world like a certain job or lifestyle and I cannot. What God’s will is, I want to accept it and for Him to give me courage to live it faithfully whether or not it is celibacy. Please pray for my family.
