Reflections on ordination: “The current world we live in is very broken, however, I am excited that the Lord has chosen me for this particular moment to be his priest so that I can be his instrument of healing. In particular, I am enlivened to be an instrument of healing through offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and giving people absolution in the sacrament of reconciliation. I am deeply humbled to be ordained a priest! Please pray for me!”
