As I reflect upon my ordination to the priesthood and on the past ten years of my Jesuit formation, I am grateful to God for the gift of my vocation; grateful to my family for supporting me in this vocation choice; grateful to my friends, especially the ones I have made while a Jesuit, for sustaining me during my vocation training; and grateful to the benefactors of the Society of Jesus for making all of my formation financially possible. As I look forward to starting this new phase of my life as a priest, I thank everyone with whom I have served in ministry for the example that they have given to me of their own faith and vocation, and I look forward to contributing to the work that they have already begun.
