I just spoke to my counterpart at a major theological seminary and he was in a tizzy. It seems that he is behind in his theological research and is rushing to publish a much needed paper, without which, there is a very good possibility that he will be reassigned as a priest to a congregation somewhere in the boondocks.
He told me that this situation affected most of the Brothers at the graduate school, at one time or another, just as it affects many professors at universities and colleges all over the world. That's right . . . even at the seminary it's either publish or parish.
