Father Robert Stein, S.D.B.

Salesians of St. John Bosco

The “vocation” or call came to me in the form of a question: “Have you ever thought about it?” When I admitted the thought had crossed my mind, the invitation followed: “Then come and see if it is for you.”

My friends and classmates gave me at bet till Thanksgiving of 1962. I have not been able to track them down and collect on that bet.

In the years since then, there have been many ups and downs, twists and turns, success and failures, but I have to admit I would not chose another way of life. It is a living, evolving ministry that you grow into, just as with any other dynamic relationship. It is always new. It is always calling for more. It is always calling to new life, new possibilities.
