Anniversary

Today is the third anniversary of my Ordination.

I was looking at my random thoughts on the idea, here.

I'm still astounded that this has happened to me. Some days, I don't know what I'm doing. The past few days have been trying to grind me down.

Last Night, I was privileged to celebrate a sacrament for someone. That experience reminded me why I do this. It gave me strength.

A few days ago, I was able to help someone who had some emotional trouble over the phone. That experience reminded me why I do this.

Sunday, I celebrated Easter Liturgy. That too, reminds me of why I do this.

I thank you all for the chance to serve you, in whatever capacity. Priest, friend, confidante, obstacle, foil, nemesis.

Congratulations, Father!

It was a real honor to be able to celebrate with you at Conventicle.

Calling you my Priest, and having the honor of both attending the Masses given by you and working with you upon my spiritual path, has unquestionably been one of the single greatest blessings I've received during the entirety of my spiritual journey. Deepest congratulations on this, your third year anniversary!

Happy Anniversary then! A great post, agreat reflection. For a time I've been feeling the need to be ordained, I mean, I'm a high school teacher, I do charity work, but lately I been feeling the need to serve as clergy (i.e. to bring the sacraments nearer to people). This post was a great inspiration.

Blessings,

Senko
