Why am I studying to become a priest? I am studying to become a priest because Theology is the ¨Real Science!” And by faith handed on to me, having the capacity to interpret the facts and events of my story, God’s footprints have led me to desire with a redeemed heart to become consecrated to Him, which is Extraordinary! “Behind me comes one who has passed ahead of me because he existed before me.” (Jn. 1:30)

Favourite hobby/extracurricular activity before you became a seminarian:  My favorite hobby before entering the seminary was traveling. I am fascinated by encountering new languages, cultures, and art around the world. I have been in various countries in Europe, Middle East and South America. Perhaps one day, I can fulfill Jesus’ mandate to announce the Gospel to the ends of the world.

If you could be one superhero, who would you be, and why?  If I were a superhero, I would be Bruce Wayne. He is an expert on virtually all types of weaponry. Therefore, an exceptional swordsman, as evident in his fight with his proficiency in jiu-jitsu, I would proclaim his swordsmanship skill using the two-edged sword which is the Word of God (Heb 4:12) as the ultimate artillery. The sword would penetrate the movements and secret intentions of the human heart.

Favourite quote: “Felix Culpa” (Praeconium Paschale, Exsultet, St. Augustine)
