For seminarian, God wrote straight with crooked lines — or headlines

Anthony Federico, a seminarian from the Archdiocese of Hartford, Conn., prayed in the chapel at Theological College in Washington Oct. 25. After getting fired from a job at ESPN because of a poorly-phrased headline, Federico took another job which allowed him to go to Mass daily and discern his call to the priesthood.

WASHINGTON — Anthony Federico is one of three seminarians from the Archdiocese of Hartford, Conn., studying at Theological College in Washington. But he's the only one of them to inadvertently create an internet outcry.

Federico, who is 33 and in the third year of his theologate at Theological College, grew up in Connecticut, a big fan of Major League Baseball's New York Yankees and the National Hockey League's Hartford Whalers.
