Sweet Lord…

“Sweet Lord, you are meek and merciful. Who would not give himself wholeheartedly to your service, if he began to taste even a little of your fatherly rule?” — St. Robert Bellarmine

Two years before my ordination to the priesthood, I received the following inspiration from Jesus during personal prayer time on my spiritual exercises retreat: “Br. Michael, I know this is hard for you, and I know that you did not choose this path, but I need your help. There are a lot of souls that I want to touch through your priesthood, and I would really appreciate it if you could help me. You don’t have to do this, but I would be very grateful.” This was the defining moment in my vocation and this continues to propel me forward in serving Our Lord each and every day!
