I grew up in a Catholic family in Honduras with a very devout grandmother. From a very young age, I felt fascinated by the priesthood. After my first Holy Communion, I became an altar server and joined the Legion of Mary. Through prayer, discernment, and inspired by the example of several holy and pious priests, I started discerning God’s call more deeply. Let us pray for each other so that together, under the intercession of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God, and our Mother, we respond to the call of our common vocation, heaven.

Fun Fact
