“I hope that these videos continue to feed your own prayer as they are actually beginning to feed mine. I am surprised how much I am actually thinking about my own path now, toward this path to priesthood, because I have to be conscience about every experience I have every day now, I’m thinking ‘okay, can I blog about this’ and it forces me to reflect on what God is doing and how God is actively working in me and through me to affect other people.”

“In my own discernment, it’s been an ongoing process; what really turned me around during the discernment process was a prayer experience I had during a discernment retreat, where I got this real sense of Jesus, falling in love with me. It sounds strange, but it’s a relationship and ultimately that’s why I’m a Jesuit, because of my relationship with Christ.”
