Why am I studying to become a priest? In brief, I am studying for the priesthood because I have discerned it is God’s will for my life and to cooperate with His will is how I reciprocate, even in an imperfect way, His infinite love for me.  For as St. Alphonsus de Liguori affirms, “the more one unites his will to the Divine will, the greater will be his love of God.”

If you could be one superhero, who would you be, and why? Spider-Man, because he was my favorite superhero growing up.  As a kid, I had several Spider-Man posters taped to my bedroom wall and remember dressing up as him for Halloween.
