A few years ago the priest at my church had encouraged me to serve on the altar and I was very much happy at this opportunity. However, because I was in the choir as well, the choir director was very reluctant to "let me go" and I would alternate every week from being on the altar to being in the choir. Needless to say, when that priest left I served only in the choir and
I want to be obedient to those who are "above" me, but I also feel that God might be calling me to serve at the altar. It has and I think will have a positive effect on my personal spiritual life as well as discern whether or not I am called to the priesthood.
How should I approach this situation? I do not want to seem prideful or arrogant and "demand" that I be on the altar, but I also want to heed God's call if that is what He is indeed calling me to. Any advice would be appreciated, thank you.
