Edoardo is preparing for the priesthood
“At the age of 21, I am on the path to – if God wills – becoming a priest,” wrote Edoardo Santini on social media. As he confessed, since childhood he had been wondering what it meant to be in the Church. He also admitted that for a long time “various fears” did not allow him to explore this issue. He then submitted a request to his bishop and began preparations to enter the seminary. He began to study theology, and also helps in two parishes in the Archdiocese of Florence. “Will I become a priest? I don’t know, I’m here to find out,” wrote Santini. He added: “I’m Edoardo, I’m 21 and I’m happy.”
