Priestly Vocation Born from the Immaculate Heart of Mary

On October 18, 1992, my mother knelt down near Red Square in Moscow, Russia. Three years later on that same day was the first time in my mind I had the very clear awareness that I was born to be a Catholic priest.

The Immaculate Heart of Mary is an abyss of mercy for those who have greatest need. It is a gift from the infinite and endless fountain of God's divine Mercy. It is that last line of defense, the last hope for those who have no hope, the most unwarranted, unmerited, and undeserved gift of the Most Holy Trinity.
