Why am I studying to become a priest? I am studying to become a priest because I feel great joy and fulfillment whenever I see others accept God’s love and mercy to fill the void in their hearts. The truth has been food and light to my soul and I desire for others to experience this unfathomable feeling of being finally satisfied.

Favourite quote: “To reveal someone’s beauty is to reveal their value by giving them time, attention, and tenderness. To love is not just to do something for them but to reveal to them their own uniqueness, to tell them that they are special and worthy of attention.” Jean Vanier
