Please, I beg you, do not tempt him, have some sense of reverence for their position and their duties.

yes.  help him.  his is a vocation, a constant, while your passion may wane with tomorrow's moon.

OT: a priest friend of mine almost didn't make it to ordination.  for the love of a woman, what else.  he was on training for clinical pastoral psychology at the u.s. at that time.  he wrote to his mother about his change of plans.  he happens to have a down-to-earth mother with a temper to boot.  she answered with a one-page letter, containing only these two words repeated many, many times over: 'peste ka!'  da, lahos ang ordinasyon ni ondo.  until now, he's a very good priest.

Hmm, but then again, daghan man laging migawas pagkapari, where's the constancy? As for her passion, who are you to say? As for the moon, which planet's moon?

To paraphrase Hamlet:

"There are more things in heaven and earth, Islander,
Than are dreamt of in your theology."

nganong iphon man ang nigawas sa pagkapari nga mas daghan man ang nagpabilin?  the constancy referred to is the vocation, not the person who may or may not become a priest, nor a priest who may or may not remain as one in form though not in substance.  ("You are a priest forever." - Hebrews 7:17.)

yes, it is not for me to say about the passion of this thread's poster; it is for me to glean that passion from her posts. 

being a female myself, i would be too remiss if i didn't make some conclusions (not immutable ones, i must stress) even from the fact alone that she was compelled to start this thread and pour her heart out with such acute despair. ;D

it is a very holy calling, and a divine vocation. many men are called to the priesthood, but only a select few are able to answer it.
i myself, was one who applied to the seminary and was undergoing spiritual encouragement by my parish priest (who is also my friend) at the time. however, with the weakness of my body and knowing myself, i hesitated in finishing all the additional application material to the seminary. i was not qualified , from knowing myself and my own propensity to sin. many of my good friends are now in their major seminary years, one of them, a very good friend named JR, is finishing his last year. He will be ordained next year -- and i will be attending his ordination mass.

I always talk to him, we keep in contact through emails and texting or calling each other. We support each other through our trials and our difficulties. I pray for him throughout his studies and mentally support him (as he really needs it!) as he does for me. He always text messages me from time to time and says things like, "Hi Doctor! Keep it up, and Keep studying!"

Small things like that, which really add up in the long run.

This is why I implore the OP and all the rest that may read this, to consider the vocation of these holy men. The spirit may be strong, but the flesh is weak. So be considerate of them, lang.

Just like Father Chicogon's song, "A Priest Forever -- Mark of Priestly Bliss"  :D

thus deserving of a paraphrase of romeo and juliet's friar laurence:

"Hold thy desperate hand:
