This came to me from LarryD of Acts of the Apostasy – a great blog that uses humor and intelligence to spread the beauty of the Catholic Church.
This is a great vocations video! I found it very funny. The Lord is sending us good young men who are in seminary currently. We have so many good young priests in the Catholic Church now. In my diocese, Phoenix, there is a plethora of them in seminary (three of them were students at St. Mary’s Catholic High School when I taught there) and I believe more are being called now. The one thing I notice about our young priests here in Phoenix – Fr. Matt Lowry, Fr. Paul Sullivan, Fr. Will Schmid, Fr. Robert Bolding, Fr. John Muir, Fr. John Parks, Fr. Chad King, Fr. Matt Henry and many others - they love being priests! They love celebrating the Mass. They love going to Confession; they love hearing Confessions. They love the everyday joy the priesthood brings to them. Oh more thing, the young priests in Phoenix (and the priests who have been priests for 10 years plus), ROCK at preaching! I love being back in Phoenix because the preaching at Mass is the best I have heard anywhere. Whoever is teaching our guys Homiletics in seminary is doing their job well!
