Brief Moments of Grace

Last summer, when I was first beginning my priestly ministry, I often had fleeting moments where I would suddenly realize, "Hey, I'm a priest."  This would happen while sitting at the computer writing an email, or as I signed a document and forgot to add the "Fr." before my name.  Since then, I have grown rather used to this fact, and these moment have become much more rare, but they still occur from time to time.  Such was the case this morning as I was washing my hands and glancing in the mirror noticed that I was wearing a collar.  "Hey, I'm a priest."  For me, these are grace-filled moments of gratitude, joy, and happiness.  I love being a priest.

  1. We need more priests! I hope you set a good example in your parish and inspire young men to a priestly vocation.
