It's Ordination Time

Tomorrow, Saturday, is one of my favorite days of the year. How I look forward to singing the Litany of the Saints, inviting this great cloud of witnesses to be present with us, as God ordains some of my brother Jesuits to the priesthood!

Jesuits will be ordained throughout the country, and we are particularly blessed this year in the New Orleans province of the Society of Jesus to have seven men being ordained priests. Please join me in praying for the priestly ministry of these brothers of mine who will be ordained tomorrow in New Orleans:

R.V. Baylon, S.J.
Ron Boudreaux, S.J.
Flavio Bravo, S.J.
John Cunningham, S.J.
Justin Daffron, S.J.
Tony Rauschuber, S.J.
Ross Romero, S.J.

They will be offering their gifts in a variety of ministries including higher education, secondary education, pastoral ministry, retreat ministry and hispanic ministry. Thanks to be God for this gift to the Church and the people of God!
