Priestly Ordinations 2016

The happy occasion of the ordination of three new priests on 15 December was a great grace for the many faithful who made the journey to the Seminary for this beautiful ceremony. 

Despite the wet weather, the look of joy on the faces of those present was steady and unmistakable. Although even just a little reflection is enough to see the importance of such an event for the spiritual future of individuals and families, it almost seemed that, even without any reflection, the greatness of the day was lost on no one. There seems to be an instinct within the baptized soul, arising from the sense of the faith, which grasps intuitively the supreme significance of priestly ordinations for the Church and for the world.
