I think most of you have read by now the story about the young man who is a hot baseball prospect, with the A’s, Grant Desme, who has chosen to verify a vocation to the priesthood at St. Michael’s Abbey in Orange, CA.
I had this note from a priest friend and sometime poster here at WDTPRS who knows him:
What you may not know is that the young man, Grant Desme, is from the Latin Mass community of San Clemente in Bakersfield. What you also may not know is that he served Latin Mass for you and for me (he would have been 7th-8th grade when you were in Bakersfield, and was a high schooler during my time there).
God bless him!
Brick by brick.
