Nun’s husband to be ordained

February 23, 2011

A Lutheran convert who is married to a Carmelite nun is being ordained as a Catholic priest in Germany.

The Cologne archdiocese said 61-year-old Harm Klueting is to be ordained as a Catholic priest Tuesday, Fox News reports.

Pope Benedict gave him a special permission to remain married to his wife Edeltraut Klueting, who became a Catholic Carmelite nun in 2004. The couple has two grown children.

“It doesn’t happen every day,” noted Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi.
