Some Quotes from the Experience 

Before the service:

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.

May God richly bless your life and ministry going forward.
