Who Are The Hardest Working Clergy?

Archdiocese of Boston raises priests’ retirement age from 70 to 75 - The Boston Globe

Nobody works as hard as a Roman Catholic priest -- especially the ones here in the Diocese of Syracuse. I'll bet a lot of priests do a dozen or more masses per week + hospital visitation + parish administration. Imagine doing 2-3 funerals and weddings + 6 weekend masses + daily mass and coming up with a homily/sermon for each service.

Not sure what the retirement age is here but I heard from someone at St. Joe's Hospital that the nuns have to work into their 70's -- HAVE TO! But then again I heard reports today of Social Security tanking in 2013 today so it's possible we're all working into our 70's -- though I'm having a little trouble working in my 40's.
