Manly Dominion

In college, one of RC2's good friends was a bright, engaging and handsome fellow --very devout, who was getting his M.A. He was also one of several fellows in his circle who were perpetually agonizing over their "vocations" (marriage or priesthood?). To answer this profound question, they neither asked any girls out nor visited any seminaries. 7 years later, when RC2 went to her younger sister's graduation from the same school, that same guy was hoist on the horns of the same dilemma. This post over at Mere Comments brought him to mind. RC2 can't vouch for the book being discussed, but she recognizes the Catholic version of the phenomenon. She also likes the line about men being called to have dominion and "You guys don't even have dominion over your hair."
