We are also blessed to have Bishop Andrew Cozzens as the director of our retreat. He arrived to Rome last night. He joined us for a nice meal and Mass.
This morning we had Mass one more time at St. Peter's Basilica. We were in one of the crypt chapels. Deacon Michael Barsness preached about how we must be grateful for all we have received here in the Eternal City and throughout our vocational journey. This message is very true. We are grateful for everything we have received from the bounty of our Lord. We are grateful to our family and friends. We are grateful for our benefactors. We are grateful to every person who faithfully holds us in prayer. We are grateful to our seminary staff and formation directors. We are grateful to our holy bishops and priests that have been wonderful examples of how to live sacrificial lives in imitation of our Savior. The list goes on . . .
We hope you have enjoyed this blog. The blog is now complete.
Please pray for us during our retreat. Pray that we may be holy priests of God.
