They have been married 55 years, have 8 children, 52 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren so far. He just felt he should or at least wanted to marry.
One of my cousins joined the monastery for a while. My cousin has been a priest for five years now and couldn’t be happier.
I’ve met several other former seminarians who are now husbands and fathers.
A few days ago, we were talking about our relationship.
He also said that he has to wait two years from his release date to reapply.
What I wonder is if anyone has any advice on how to handle this on my side of things? Does anyone know how often a seminarian who is let go of, is accepted back or asked to come back? I’m constantly praying and asking for God’s help with patience and understanding for all of this, but I’ve never known anyone with this kind of back ground or situation. Depending on why he was “let go” it would be up to him whether or not he wanted to go back so really the question you (and he) need to be asking is whether he still feels called to priesthood.
While on leave after boot camp he met the new choir member at Mass. 17th I gave birth to their 23rd grandchild and we probably arent done yet. Dad always said if God wants you at the alter, He will get you there one way or the other. He said the seminary is the best place to become either one of those.
You learn the truth of our faith and learn how to put it into practice as well.Fast forward to now, we’ve been dating a couple months or so, and there are strong feelings between us, however both of us are some what scared that he might go back to the seminary.
