Jesus Christ

When young men enter a religious order or seminary, it provokes a variety of responses.

As a young reporter, I always saw myself as pretty ambitious. Others saw me the same way, as few friends seem to have anticipated my decision to study for the priesthood.

One of my former D.C. co-workers learned yesterday that I'm entering the Jesuits. Here was his tongue-in-cheek reaction:

"A priest? Jesus Christ!"

Sean! I know I've had the link to this post forever but I've been ever so busy. I should say, I was not surprised at all, but perhaps your friends in D.C. don't know you as well. Let me know if you're ever in Indiana.

Jillian,

Thanks - I'm glad someone saw it coming! :)

I'll be back in Indiana/Chicago for most of July and early August before leaving for the novitiate.

I will be working in Darien (just 30 minutes south of Chicago) most of July! We have to get together and catch up. I really can't wait to hear about the new journey you're about to embark on! I have been checking in on this site every once in a while. You've always been able to think about things in a totally unique way. I appreciate that (and I know the Jesuits will too).
