Buenos Aires, Argentina, Apr 23, 2012 / 15:03 pm
Antonio Salvador De Iacovo, an Argentinean widower and father of four, was recently ordained to the priesthood following thirty years of marriage.
“God will softly lead you, inviting you to follow him from among many options,” Father De Iacovo observed. “God wants us all to be saints, in the place where we are at.”
After the priest's wife passed away in 2007, he decided two years later in 2009 to return to the vocation he was drawn to as a young man.
Archbishop Andres Stanovnik of Corrientes, who presided over his ordination, recalled that Fr. De Iacovo was a fellow seminarian with him in 1968 and 1972.
