Fr. Bob McGee: "How are you feeling right now?"
Me: "There are so many people here from so many different areas of my life. To be honest, I'm confused."
Fr. Bob: "May you always be so."
Griffin: (says nothing, but taps the part of the service booklet that reads, If anyone knows of any impediment or crime... and then indicates he would like to be paid a significant sum of money.)
During the service:
Fr. Bob: (looking around at everyone) "You do not get such love without first having such love."
After the service:
Millie: "Ryan Whitley, you are totally ordained!"
Parishioner: "Do you feel different."
Me: "No, not so much different as more complete."
Parishioner: "And after this he's taking the kids to a camp! Can you believe it, he's crazy!"
Fr. Ed: "That's true, but that's not the reason he's taking the kids to the camp. His vocation is taking over."
Lauren: "You are ordained a priest now. We're going to have to discuss that."
It was a beautiful service!
all those people that love you Ryan. What a day.
