And married priests raise provocative questions for the Catholic Church, whose shortage of clergymen is worsening by the day. Most Americans, perhaps most American Catholics, do not know that the church allows married priests.

These churches are fully Catholic, obedient to the pope, but they ordain married men, although they do not allow unmarried priests to get married.

In the Eastern Catholic Churches, a married priest is one who married before being ordained. The Catholic Church considers the law of clerical celibacy to be not a doctrine, but a discipline.

I am a personal friend of the authoress and am definitely prejudiced in the favor of this family.
Father Peter, impetuous, warm and friendly, to me was an ideal priest. As a married man and father he brought understanding to those with family problems, and Mary was a loving friend to those of us Catholics that welcomed a married priest. Their journey of faith was difficult. sometimes joyful, sometimes painful, but they left part of themselves with those who accepted their ministry. A very good read which I heartily recommend.

I did meet Mary and Father Peter several years ago at a dinner sponsored by the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic men's fraternal organization. It was quite interesting to read Mary's account of the difficult period in their lives when they faced opposition from all sides.

Mary Vincent Dally (born 1938) is the wife of the Reverend Peter Dally, who is an Episcopal priest who converted to Catholicism. Under the Pastoral Provisions issued by Pope John Paul II, former non-Catholic ministers can be ordained priests, even though they are married; accordingly, Dally now serves as Associate Pastor at Holy Family Cathedral in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Here are some quotations from the book:

"I thought of the Episcopal Church, and how Peter had felt about it since the 1976 General Convention. He and his friends talked a lot about leaving, but to leave would mean to leave the ministry, and these were men who felt called to serve God, practicing and teaching the Catholic faith as they knew it. To become Roman Catholic would mean they would become laymen since they were all married... There no longer existed a bastion of Catholic theology in the Episcopal Church within which clergy who were high church could take refuge. They felt deserted and alone, adrift in a body which no longer wanted them or needed to tolerate them." (Pg. 10)
"As with Peter, his sister Elizabeth's life was a struggle for survival and a desire for firm roots which eventually led her to a religious vocation." (Pg. 16)
"The weeks passed slowly by.... Father Clark himself discouraged Peter from making the move, saying that we would not be welcomed by most priests and sisters in the archdiocese. However, for Peter, nothing daunted his optimism and enthusiasm for whatever lay ahead." (Pg. 24)
"Newman said Roman Catholics never trusted him. And they didn't. They frustrated him in every possible way, and he was a saint. In don't know, Mary. I don't know what I'll do." (Pg. 39)
"A blanket of calm and peace lightly embraces my shoulders as Bishop Beltran places his hands on Peter's head in the traditional way that the priesthood has been transmitted since the time of Christ... Now it's time for me. In front of the altar, I take the deacon's stole from Peter's shoulder and place around his neck the stole of the priest. I lift the chasuble over his head..." (Pg. 257)

From the comfort and prestige of their Episcopal parish on Vashon Island to their pattern braking baptism into the Catholic Church, this is bittersweet story, a heroine’s journey into the unknown. The author’s pioneering courage is palpable. When Mary and her now priest/husband were invited to conferences, her priest/husband was ushered into large decorated halls for fine dining with other Catholic priests and bishops, while nuns pull her into the kitchen to snack in silence. Later, in their Catholic Oklahoma parish, they create a special Christmas pageant. When the Wise Men were called to the manager, three Chiefs from local tribes dance up the aisle wearing their headdresses and ceremonial regalia. In this unique memoir, Mary Vincent Dally, as both author and priest’s wife, brings true spirituality to readers. Well worth reading.
