Ordained a Priest on the Threshold of Eternity

8 SEPTEMBER 2014. The Church celebrated the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary this day, but her birthday prayers were certainly with a man to be ordained on her day, as he prepared to cross the threshold into eternity with our Lord, her Son.

Read the story here about Father William Carmona, ordained as a Priest of our Lord Jesus Christ on 8 September 2014, who was born into eternal life on 10 September 2014.

Truly, this act of mercy and love, by Bishop Choby and all those who worked to make the ordination possible, shines a glorious and moving light on the value of the human person and the calling that each one of us has to pour out our lives to the God who made us and gives us all.

Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon him.
May he rest in peace. 

May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed,
though the mercy of God, rest in peace.
