Congratulations, Joel!

This post comes to you from Cincinnati, where my friend and brother Jesuit Joel Medina was ordained to the priesthood earlier today at St. Francis Xavier Church by Archbishop William D'Souza, S.J. of Patna, India. I first met Joel eight years ago, when he was a first-year novice and I was a candidate for the Society; the fact that he is now a priest reminds me how quickly time flies and also makes me feel somewhat longer in the tooth than I felt yesterday.

Please join me in praying for Father Joel Medina as he begins his priestly ministry; please pray also for all others who have recently been or are preparing to be ordained, and please pray for vocations to the priesthood and to religious life. AMDG.
