and that my friends, means I don’t own a Cassock, I never learned Latin, never experienced the Tridentine Mass and never ever imagined I would ever EVER… well, you get the idea! What's a priest to do… well, Keep Calm, and Learn Latin! But where, how, when… Keep Calm and Pray! Wait, no… how about telling the Bishop how there must be someone else, much better suited and much more ‘seasoned’ than I! Yep, seems the obvious thing to do, right? Nope, it was a conversation that ended with being joyfully told, ‘I have the utmost confidence’ in you! So, okay, back to Keeping Calm while praying and learning Latin.
You know how God has a way of working things out, all sorts of things at the same time? In ways you wouldn’t imagine? Yeah, so God was working things out before I started praying and boy howdy did I like what God was bringing together! Oh wait, don’t get the wrong the idea, I was praying about all sorts things and in all sorts of ways long before this… so, maybe I should say I really started to ‘discern’ how God was leading so that I could trust and follow.
I’d love to tell you more… stay tuned… but for now you can read about the middle of a story about a journey, a pilgrimage to a far away land to learn an ancient language and to walk in the footsteps of family, saints and sinners… on Facebook… at…https://www.facebook.com/CampusPadre
