(or a football player for you non-Americans)
Wow. That’s impressive. And so gratifying to see all those other young men willingly embracing their desire to serve the Church.
That was such an inspiring and touching story. It’s actually bringing tears to my eyes.
Here in the UK, our national Vocations Office did a video advert in the early 1990s which was basically “You can be a priest and like football”. Shame I can’t find it on youtube
I saw this interview on CNN. I loved his story and it was wonderful of CNN to show it.
Well done to that young man.
He had a great career to look forward to and plenty of material trappings that come with that career, so to pledge himself to a priestly life is a fantastic example.
I wish him well in his new vocation.
