As a convert to the Catholic faith, I see my vocation as a beautiful expression of divine Providence. Several years ago, I could never imagine the idea of becoming a Christian, much less going into ministry. God works in mysterious ways, and He brought me—an outsider—into the deepest part of the heart of the Church. I am so grateful to be able to wake up every morning to spend my time with the Lord present in the Blessed Sacrament. It is there that I feel my vocation is blossoming like a flower that, for the longest time, refused to even bud. Deo gratias!
