Discerning celibacy vs married life
« on: January 16, 2017, 11:29:05 PM »
Are there any resources and books out there to help someone to discern whether he/she should stay a single (not necessarily monasticism/priesthood but as an option from staying in the laity) or to marry.

St Makarios, pray for us.
