priestly advice

October 26, 2008 Leave a comment

MASS – (Fr Santos) — Fr Santos shared some words of wisdom from a Spiritual Director he had in seminary.  When you become a priest, (1) travel light, (2) love deeply & learn detachment, and (3) keep your priorities in sight.  Simple, yet profound and practical.  — this made for some great discussion at brunch!

final exams done!
