When Faith and Love Collide
Susan and Ed Bilbao grew up in the Philippines, in an environment very heavily influenced by Catholicism. Susan worked for religious organizations, and Ed had every intention of becoming a priest.
And while their faith united them, it also presented complications when they wanted to be together.
In this edition of Storycorps Tampa Bay, Susan and Ed discuss his decision to end their relationship to take on an oath of celibacy, and how, over time, they found each other again.
