To be confirmed as a Catholic is to be accepted into a global family of loyal servants to Christ. It is to establish powerful bonds that transcend time, space, borders, and all other earthly barriers to God's Love (caritas). Newfound bonds spread and intertwine to form vast networks of spiritual support and mutual trust. You are suddenly no-longer undervalued. Instead, you are cherished for your role in the largely more important production.
Many years back I started my journey of becoming a priest. The fact is, to me it seemed a very long journey. So I decided to take one day at a time. I remember with certainty my burning bush experience that attracted me to the priesthood. When I was a little boy, after the visit of John Paul II, my mum explained the role of a priest to me and from that day my desire to serve God as a priest developed and grew stronger.
