In the case of widower priests, do they often continue functioning as parish priests,
or do they instead enter monastic life? Is it perfectly acceptable for a widower priest to not enter monastic life (perhaps for health reasons)? Just wondering.
A widowed Priest is eligible to be elevated to Bishop. However, in the USA, widowed Priests do not enter monastic life.

In the "home" countries widowed priests have the option of monastic life if they feel that God is calling them to it. It's seen as a normal thing to do.
