You probably remember his story from a couple weeks back:

The former Northern Ireland footballer Philip Mulryne has been ordained a Roman Catholic priest in the Dominican Order.

Fr Mulryne, who is reported to have once earned £600,000 a year, has also taken a vow of poverty.

Now, in a video he describes what led him to the priesthood. Check it out above. What a great witness for the world.  Ad multos annos!
