Light in the Darkness

Welcome to my Light in the Darkness meme! (If you missed my post on the inspiration for this meme, you can read all about it HERE.)

This is the place to share good things that are happening in our world...whether it's a link to a news article/video, something from your personal experience...anything good that can bring light into darkness!

Today I share a bittersweet story...A seminarian in Maumee, OH was ordained a priest earlier than planned due to his cancer. He died 40 hours after his ordination, after offering his first Mass. 

My one exception is to the article's title...He is a priest FOREVER, not just 40 hours! May he rest in peace, celebrating the joy of the Mass in all it's splendor in Heaven!
