Here’s something to make your day a little brighter.
Do you long term readers remember helping an American seminarian, then deacon, for the Institute of Christ the King raise money to pay for his seminary formation? (Yes, most of the time priests have to pay for some or all of their formation.) You helped him to hit his goals and pay his bills. At the time, he wrote:
I knew it from the very beginning of this campaign and only a “Fr-Z effect” could do anything for my fundraising campaign and good Saint Joseph brought you to me… Thank you Father. I owe this to you. …
He was recently ordained to the sacred priesthood by Card. Burke.
Here is shot of Fr. Justin Ong, saying Mass.
Lots of people giving even a little, can make a difference.
YOU, dear readers, helped this man to the altar.
Say a prayer for this new priest, Fr. Justin Ong.
Ad multos felicissimos annos!
