The self-giving love of the cross

Every vocation in the Church has at its root the call of Jesus Christ.  This is particularly true in the call to the priesthood.

Ardent yet gentle

The Catholic Church, guided by the Holy Spirit, offers priests the option for celebrating votive Masses on days where another specific Mass (i.e., the feast of an Apostle) is designated. 

Mary, Mother of Priests

The recent 100th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima has renewed the devotion to the Rosary for many Catholics. This renewal is true for many brother priests and myself, as the daily recitation and contemplation of the Mysteries of Jesus Christ through the heart of Mary were a significant part of our formation and now support us in ministry.
