As darkness falls on the day of the anniversary of ordination to the priesthood, I give thanks for God’s calling and His Grace that has sustained me as His own. The greatest part of being a priest is getting to know the people God has given to me to care for in these trying days. Also the greatest responsibility! Being able to say Mass, being able to visit the sick, to pray for them and with them, seeing those in need relieved, seeing those in torment lifted by the sacraments, these are what life in Christ is about. His grace freely given, His love all around us. May we travel further down His path together for the years to come. May God bless all of you.
