The Church occupied a central position in my family. It was inevitable that one of us kids would become a priest or nun. In fact, two of my brothers went to the seminary in an attempt to serve God. Another of my sisters also tried out the convent for a very short while. I was the only one who managed to hang on for as long as I did–nineteen years. It took a major shakeup in the Church and my personal growth cycle to wake me up. I finally did.
