"I, too, want to offer my tes- timony as a priest for almost 50 years," the pope said. He did not enter the semi- nary until after he had fin- ished high school and begun his university studies in Polish philology, "which corresponded to my interests and prefer- ences at that time." But his university studies, and involvement in a theater group, were interrupted by World War II. "In September 1940 I began to work, first in a stone quarry and then in the Solvay factory. "My priestly vocation ma- tured within me precisely in that difficult situation," he said. "It matured in the suffer- ing of my nation; it matured in physical labor among the workers: it matured also thanks to the spiritual direc- tion of various priests, espe- cially my confessor."
