162- Marriage and priesthood


Vlog 162 – Marriage and priesthood

 Hello my friend, I’m Victoria Bellido Durán, member of the Musical Group Flos Mariae, and today I want to give you my opinion about the subject that I entitled: “Marriage and priesthood”.

My friend, yes, marriage and the priesthood have more things in common than it seems; both are sacraments introduced by Jesus Christ; both require a great sacrifice, an incredible love and faith in God, a firm will, a good dose of patience, and a lot of charity, a tremendous charity. Yes, my friend, both are wonderful sacraments, but, however, the man who has a vocation to holy matrimony, has no vocation to the priesthood, and vice versa. The same happens for women, those who have a vocation to holy matrimony, they do not have the vocation as a nun, although being a nun or monk is not a sacrament. Therefore, it is not right for people to pressure others, young people or adults, telling them: “you must be a nun, or, you must marry” and with the males, “you must be a priest, or, you must marry”.

Who calls each one to his vocation, is God!, and nobody has to hurry anyone.

My friend, listen to God, and follow your vocation, and do not choose it under pressure from anyone. Your life is to live it to the service of God, always giving Him glory!

Remember my friend, both the priesthood and marriage are sacraments.

My friend, thank you.

And always go ahead with faith.
