Boy Monks at Work or Play

They start ‘em young here. I remember being recruited by the Passionist Priests at the age of thirteen. I spent a week in a seminary during the summer of 1963, to see if I had a vocation. They thought I did, I wasn’t sure. Somehow I think I knew the Beatles were going to hit America that fall and change everything. Anyway, these young boys look like they’re having fun playing monk, and who knows, some of them might stick with it later. I don’t know how many stay with it for a lifetime, but it’s part of their basic education. Even the King spent time as a monk when he was in his late teens.
