Playing violin, cooking, reading, and going on unplanned adventures with my brothers.
I was famous one summer of high school because I had a large, orange afro.
I can't make a definitive, for always choice, but lately I've been spending lots of time with St. Bernadette Soubirous.
The Brown Scapular (of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel) and the Miraculous Medal are very important parts of my relationship with Jesus.
When I was 16, God quietly brought the question of priesthood up to me. I thought it was very strange that when I saw my pastor doing “normal priest things” or watched a movie about St. John Paul II, my heart would leap and I would feel very moved. I decided I needed to figure out what was happening, so I spent more time in the adoration chapel. I got to the point of saying, “God, I want to follow where you call me. So, what do you want me to do?” The prayer was sincere, but the problem was I had so many fears I couldn’t listen for God’s response. Instead of hearing his call, I could only see my sins, my fears, and my weaknesses.
I most look forward to sharing with many others, by my words, actions, and (hopefully) my whole life what I have received: the burning love and intense mercy of God that brings light, joy, peace, and freedom.

Pray that I will have humility like Our Lady to receive all that the Father wants to give me.
