When the newly ordained priest hugs his mom, both crying, we can feel their joy and emotion through the screen!
I remember my surprise when, after saying my marriage vows, I realized that I had become a bride, and that I really had a husband. The vows themselves lasted maybe two minutes, but it was enough. A few sentences changed my whole future life—and not just mine. That’s the power of a sacrament.
Such is the case of this young man, who in a few minutes, after a few sentences from his bishop, becomes a priest and his entire future is changed. And not only his own!
What happened next was recorded in a short video, 45 seconds full of meaning. I couldn’t help being moved by this scene.
