“My decision to pursue priestly ordination stems from a culmination of various life experiences that led me closer to God and ultimately to Pope St. John XXIII. I can wholeheartedly say that if not through God’s grace and the example set forth by my parents, spiritual directors, and religious brothers, I would not be pursuing this call today. I praise God for the great influences they have had throughout my life as well as the many difficulties they have sought me through. They will be forever in my prayers”.
