Early Life and Ordination

Born in Landau (Rhineland-Palatinate), Wetter studied in Landau and then, from 1948 to 1956, in the Gregorian University in Rome, where he obtained a doctorate in theology. In 1953, he was ordained a priest in Rome.

Famous quotes containing the words ordination, early and/or life:

    Two clergymen disputing whether ordination would be valid without the imposition of both hands, the more formal one said, “Do you think the Holy Dove could fly down with only one wing?”
    Horace Walpole (1717–1797)

    I realized how for all of us who came of age in the late sixties and early seventies the war was a defining experience. You went or you didn’t, but the fact of it and the decisions it forced us to make marked us for the rest of our lives, just as the depression and World War II had marked my parents.
    Linda Grant (b. 1949)

    We have got to know what both life and death are, before we can begin to live after our own fashion. Let us be learning our a-b- c’s as soon as possible.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
