Priest Adoptions?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I once read a book in which a priest adopted 3 children from the Phillipines. I can't think of the name, but I will post it when I think of it.

used to be a preist at my parish who adopted. I'm not sure what the circumstances were, but now the child's all grown up and has a family of his own.

I've read books before where monasteries and nuneries have adopted a few children (usually monasteries had boys and nuneries girls). I don't know of any current occurences of this, but I'm sure it happens occasionally.

THis reminds me of my favorite Catholic movie: Marcelino, Pan y Vino.

It's about some Capuchin francsican friars who take in an abandoned baby and raise him . . . he eventually dies . . . but not before an incredible miracle . . .
