I Love this Line in a News Story

In a news story about a woman who wants to become a priest, the Mercury News wrote this great line. It's not a knock on them but the whole idea itself. Here's my favorite line:
She regularly attends Episcopal services in Capitola, but still considers herself a devout Catholic.
I'm sure she does.

Her background is just textbook.
Fahrenbach, 58, was raised outside Chicago in a staunchly Catholic family, attended parochial schools and studied theology at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana.

She also holds a master's degree in divinity from the Jesuit School of Theology in Berkeley.

Following her faith, Fahrenbach taught religion classes at the all-girls Mercy High School in San Francisco in the 1980s.
Nice to know she was teaching Catholic kids about the faith.



  1. Notre Dame, Jesuit School of Theology, Mercy High; why am I not surprised.

  2. I think I met her opposite; a woman who is an Episcopal minister, but because that's an employee position each parish hires, is without a parish and attends a Catholic parish because she doesn't like the local Episcopal parishes.

  3. If Fahrenbach's vocation comes from the Jesuits, but not from God, maybe she should join them.
