10 months left!

Dear Friends and Family,

Today marks 10 months till my (God-willing) ordination as a priest on December 14th. Wow! It’s getting close!

Yesterday I went with the whole seminary to Pope Benedict’s last mass in public. He seemed to be doing just fine. We (as in everyone in the whole basilica) gave him a huge standing ovation towards the end that I think would never have ended if he hadn’t stopped us.

It will be sad to lose him – I for one always loved reading and listening to his writings and speeches – but I trust he has made the right decision. Let’s pray that the Cardinals choose the one God wants to fill Saint Peter’s shoes.

Have a great Lent!
Brother Kevin
