Many people who meet Fr. Carl "Buster" Melchior are surprised when they learn that the 52-year-old priest worked nine years as an assistant equipment manager for the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Father Melchior also worked in sports medicine for almost six years until his soul-searching led him to consider the priesthood and enter the seminary in his mid 30s. Ordained six years ago, he currently serves as vocations director for the Diocese of St. Petersburg, Fla., and helps young men discern if God has also called them to the priesthood.

I know that Fathers Blum and Melchior await that moment with great expectation as do I.

The parishioners clearly love their present pastor, Father Malley, and their associate, Father Melchior who is completing the first year of his priestly ministry next month.

That so many of you loved the ordination of Father Melchior brought a return of tears of gratitude and happiness.
It also helps that only Father Carl Melchior left the seminary this Spring (understand that properly now!) while for the first time in my memory, all others are remaining in formation for next year. Finally, your prayers help a lot. The media this morning is filled with a story of a priest who felt he needed to leave the Church of his ordination. Not enough attention is paid to those who choose to remain and serve. Soon, if it is God's will, there may be more of them.

Since Saturday's ordination of Father Carl Melchior to the priesthood, a number of people have mentioned to me what a special moment this particular ordination ceremony was and how beautiful the celebration. Nice comments have accompanied my blog entry of Saturday and I have appended some pictures below.

Carl Joseph Melchior was ordained to the sacred priesthood of Jesus Christ and His Church at precisely eleven-forty one this morning at the Cathedral of St. Jude the Apostle by the laying on of hands of his bishop and the prayer of consecration. Surrounded by family and friends and a good number of priests whose ranks he has joined, our Church rejoiced, through long and sustained applause, robust singing and praying, smiles and tears of joy. Those who have had the privilege of knowing Carl know in their hearts that the Church has gained a wonderful servant today. Caring, solicitous, hopeful, trusting and trust-worthy, joyous yet not pollyannish, Father Carl Melchior will light up the faith lives of many with whom he comes into contact.
Father Carl Joseph Melchior left the Cathedral of St. Jude confident of the presence of God in his life and strengthened by the love and prayers of all who gathered there this morning. For the rest of us, we left thanking God "for unto us, a gift is given."

One week from today our local church will have a new priest, Carl Joseph Melchior. He has been in the "pipeline" now for nine years, four as a college seminarian and five in theology which included his pastoral year at St. Paul's parish in St. Petersburg. Like the arrival of all "newborns", his ordination will be greeted with rejoicing for him and for us. He wishes there were others who would be alongside of him before me but we will rejoice at each single or multiple birth. (Next year there should be two to be ordained and this morning at St. Patrick's Cathedral the vast Archdiocese of New York ordained three men). Carl's is in his forties and for many years prior to entering the seminary he worked as an Equipment Manager for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Raised and educated at Christ the King in South Tampa, his parents have already gone home to the Lord so next to my own seat, they will have the best seat "out of the house" next Saturday as their son is ordained a priest. He has a brother and sister-in-law who have at least one child for Uncle Carl to love and take pride in.
The birth of a priest is a long and somewhat arduous process. I remember when Carl first appeared before me as a candidate and he was worried that it might take so long to get ordained that the best years of his life would be behind him. He did so well in both of the seminaries and is so appreciated by those who were responsible for his formation. Most of them will join his friends and people from the parishes where he has served in rejoicing, sharing his happiness and thanking God.
On all scores, Carl Melchior is ready and like an obstetrician, I am ready to use my hands to make it happen. We should rejoice and be glad and throughout this week, pray for Carl (a.k.a. "Buster").
