Behind the Title
I was raised with Catholic sensibilities and traditions. However, my mother was Catholic, and my father Lutheran, and in 1948, the year of my birth, that meant the priest tried to coerce my father into the Church. My father, being of (stubborn, if it needs saying) German and Dutch stock, dug in his heels. One think led to another, and I didn't seriously approach the Church on my own until four years ago. Hence Late to the Table. And as I needed to petition for annulment of my first marriage, and so did my present wife, I am still late, and getting later.
