Here's a little something worth contemplating:
This speaks to your question in an oblique way. Gay men, it seems, find themselves seeking paths of service. Wanting to be spiritual- and priestly- can make us feel special- something I recall a feeling strongly in my 20's. I won't denigate that by saying it's misguided or wrong, but, all too often, this impulse towards the light can end up burning us because it fails to address our whole being- body, mind and spirit.
I can only wonder if you feel this kind of attraction.
