Personal major announcement

Post by Dolphin Kicker on Sat May 27, 2017 11:10 am

This morning I met with my entire family inclduing my grandparents, thought it was a good time since we all were treated to breakfast.

I have been thinking for quite some time about this, and this was not a decision that was made on the spur of the moment,
it's been on my mind for about a year.

In thinking about this, I realize that I am giving up getting married, raising a family, but I think this is what is in my heart.
I recently went to a conference, (see my tshirt below), and made the arrangement. In the fall and for part of this summer,
I will be going to college having transferred from WIU to a seminary school, in my start to become a Catholic Priest.

I wanted to post this because I am proud of my decision, and stand by it, I feel my life devoted to God will be more worthwhile than anything else I can hope to contribute.

The words from the Pope sum it all up, and I hope you all understand my decision.

"The world looks to the priest, because it looks to Jesus!  No one can see Christ; but everyone sees the priest, and through him they wish to catch a glimpse of the Lord!  Immense is the grandeur of the Lord! Immense is the grandeur and dignity of the priest"

I have never seen this family so quiet as when you made that announcement until mom came over to give you a hug.

Brandon, we love you, and we are proud of you, and we support your decision, but I gotta admit, I did not see this one coming.

Only question, when you become a Priest do we have to call your Father, or Brandon?

I think you went with your heart, and I admire and respect that so much. I am sure after the shock wears off from the other 3 you will hear more from them.

At least with you Brandon, there should be no doubt that children will be safe around you and that there will be no scandal.

Good luck bruh and love ya!!
