33. Dad was in WW2 at 17

 

married Mom, 7 kids..in the 70s the young weren't going into vocations, so the bishop opened it up to the layity. Dad went back to theology school and was ordained in his 40s...had 3 churches...they had to move into the priest house, quit his straight job and be on call 24/7....he did take celibacy and poverty...but since he already had Mom, got to keep her...if she died, he could have nobody else then...

he always felt guilty not going in young, I think...in those days one son went into the seminary...he had alot of different jobs and hated them all....in the end he got the job he was good at...
