“I went to Confession after a long time and there I truly encountered the Merciful Heart of Jesus. I left the confessional that day with an immense joy and sense of gratitude and a great awareness that so many others have not opened themselves up to the redeeming love of Jesus which flows through that Sacrament. That day a seed was planted in my heart - the seed of a desire to help others come to experience the merciful love of God. That seed began to grow and awaken in me the call to the priesthood. At my first Mass I told the people present that in a sense my vocation was born in the confessional.”
