Who influenced / inspired you to priesthood? Several priests who live out their vocation with joy and love; key friendships over the years; and time spent with Scripture.
What would you say to a young man who thinks he may have a vocation? I would encourage him to first deepen his relationship with Christ. It is through this relationship that we come to know who we are and who God is calling us to be. I would also encourage him to reach out to his parish priest for guidance. God never calls us to journey alone in the faith.
Favorite Scripture Passage: 1 John 4:19: We love because He loved us first.
Favorite Saint: Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Gianna Molla
