Path to Priesthood: The Priestly Ordination of Radmar Jao

With great joy and gratitude to God, Jesuit Radmar Jao was ordained a priest on Saturday, June 11th at St. Aloysius Church in Spokane, Wash. The Most Reverend Blase J. Cupich, Bishop of Spokane, presided at the ordination liturgy for Jao along with newly ordained Jesuit Jaime Alejandro Olayo Méndez. In this video, you’ll get to experience the ordination ceremony along with Jao and the parishioners at St. Aloysius.

Jao’s now starting a new chapter in his life as a Jesuit and we will touch base with him again in September as he shares with us his assignment as a new priest in the Society of Jesus. So, stay tuned!

And if you missed any of the previous video diaries with Radmar in the months leading up to this milestone moment, you can find them all here.

“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.”

Radmar Jao is officially one month away from being ordained a priest, and if there is one thing he wants this vlog edition to communicate, it is his excitement at this next stage of his life as a Jesuit.

“I’m feeling excited that the time is coming…This is not the end of a journey. No, if anything the excitement is really in the knowing that a new stage of my life is beginning,” says Radmar.

Path to Priesthood: The Process of Discernment

“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.”
