In January I went on my canonical retreat here at St. Mary’s Seminary in Houston because of ordination to the diaconate this year 2015. This was at a retreat house here in Houston. We went over the Ordination Rite for Deacon and it was a very spiritual and emotional retreat because I had the chance to reflect on my journey towards priesthood and this step of deacon. It was a time to really see God in my life at this point and to look into the future and see how ready I am to step into this new chapter in my life. It was only four years ago I entered seminary in 2010 and to be in 2015 at a retreat for deacon. Time goes by quickly, but this is to do the will of the Lord.
St. Charles Borromeo, pray for me.
