one year with our shepherd

Dear Family and Friends,

It’s been one year since that rainy March day when Pope Francis was elected. What a wonderful gift he has been and is to all of us! I try to listen to and read his preaching, and he is inspiring. Perhaps even more inspiring is the example of his life – seeing him in action as shepherd.

Pope Francis sent out one tweet yesterday: “Please pray for me”. Let’s offer up our prayers once again for him, that he’ll continue guiding us like Jesus would!

God bless you,
Father Kevin

PS: Today is the 3-month anniversary of my ordination. They’ve been three wonderful months, that’s for sure! All 31 of us new priests have been in contact throughout the day.
