An Irish Family Scandel

The problems in the priesthood were brought home to me on a personal level. My uncle was a Jesuit and chairman of the organic chemistry department at a medium-size university. He was in the order for 38 years. That's a long time to be in anything, let alone the priesthood. He left the order to, you guessed it, get married. This was nearly 30 years ago, so you can imagine the scandal in my mostly Irish Catholic family and in his community.
