  1. Thank you Fr. for this wonderful and meaningful Homily. WOW! you said it well and I will pray and hope that young men and women will open their hearts to GOD and not in the world. Remember, as you walk in this new journey, I am walking behind you with my prayers. You never did tell me if you like when I pray for you. True we need more Priest and Nuns who will be able to change this world around to be more GODLY and not worldly.

    The witness of how you were called to the priesthood will be inspiring to all those out there feeling the call to work in the vineyard!

      Hi Fr. How was your vacation? Where did you spend it? Thank you for keeping me posted on your Homily. Yes will be able to fish a lot of young man to the Priesthood.  I suggest that you just keep boys and young man to be altar helpers not girls or young woman.  Why? because being an altar boy they will know and be encourage to follow on your footsteps and will be able to listen more to GODS call.  You see the girls are not fit to be a Priest.  When Marco ate with us last week, I mentioned that to him as to what can he say about girls being altar helpers.  This is what he said,” I agree they should not be altar helpers.”  Adding to this Marco likes the old tradition that the Priest’s back from the congregation. I hear some people here said, “oh Marco is so handsome” see people look at the face not the content of the mass.  That is why when the Priest is weak in FAITH, they falter and strip out of Priesthood.     Also Fr. when Lent comes, please wash the feet of men or young men or boys.  This is more recollecting GOD’sPassion.  HE DOES NOT HAVE ANY WOMEN TO WASH BUT BECAUSE HIS DISCIPLES ARE MEN. Bringing back the tradition is good.  See now a woman ordained to be a Priest.  Women cannot compete to this vocation. Take care now, ‘
