The Man Behind the Collar

This is really worth sharing.
My most recent interaction with the priesthood outside of mass was knowing that at almost midnight a priest came to the hospital to give last rites to my grandmother and another patient in the hospital. 24 hour job.
I also love the idea of asking “Lord, what do you want me to do?”. When I was working with the youth in my parish I told them to pray every morning “What do you want for me to do today?” and if they would be bold enough to listen and act on God’s will they would live extraordinary lives of purpose and joy in Christ. I really believe this, though I forget all too often to do it myself.
