A Salvatorian reflects on over a half century of religious life
When I was a non-practicing Catholic, I was searching for happiness.
That Jesus be known and loved is the passion of my life. I believe in Him, and I want others to believe in Him.
All credit for my vocation goes to my parents and seven siblings, who influenced me with their Catholic faith.
The journey of how I ended up as a Benedictine monk and priest at St. Bernard Abbey was a winding road.
I was overwhelmed by the sense that I had come home.
The priest is called to witness to mystery, to proclaim the Word, and to celebrate Eucharist.
On the third anniversary of his ordination, Fr. Jonathan reflects on the gift of priesthood.
