Catholic Photo of the Year? Of a Newly Ordained Priest and His Mother

This photo speaks for itself.

Simply beautiful. Thanks for the post.

I second this thought. It’s so uplifting to see vocations to the priesthood. In this picture the mother speaks a thousand words.


Absolutely beautiful. What a moment for them both!

I could have done without some of the critical comments listed below the photograph, though.

What a beautiful photo…i couldn’t look at it without thinking of Jesus standing in the priests place and mother Mary kneeling in the priests mothers place…thanks for sharing this :slight_smile:
