I mean literally. He has two kids. I believe that he was married and was a deacon, but then she passed away, and he joined the priesthood after that - I’m not sure how much longer. I found this very interesting. He was just ordained a few weeks ago and is brand new to the priesthood. I’m curious as to how long a deacon must study for the priesthood.
Also, what’s the teaching behind widowers or parents joining the priesthood?
