Eberley is a father of five who at age 52 began his studies for the Roman Catholic priesthood. When his wife died in 1987, Ron entered the seminary & felt that he would never remarry & that he could accept the obligation of celibacy. But four years into his seminary training he fell in love. Ron had to leave the seminary program, but he completed his theological studies.  A provision in Canon law allows the Church to grant a dispensation to a married man to receive the Sacrament of Orders. But when a life-long Catholic seeks this dispensation all lines of communication to Rome are closed. This is the story of Ronís futile effort to become a married priest, & also a clear account of the checkered history & tortuous theology of mandatory celibacy.
