illegal immigrants? you mean white people
except that white people didn’t immigrate into the united states… they funded the united states. you can’t illegally immigrate into a society you created.
did you actually just say white people created society in america
Look at Bishop Ireton for the fall year. Right in alexandria va.
That’s funny cuz I am! :) Fingers crossed! haha
I am looking for a job in Washington, DC.
Any job really.
You see, I find out on June 11th whether I get accepted into the order of the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales. If I get in, I get to fulfill my vocation to become a priest!
But before I can enter the Novitate (your first year within a religious order), I need to work during my postulancy (I live with the order, but make my own paycheck) to pay off my college loans as best as I can.
I have $60,000 in outstanding debt.
I know economic times are tough for everyone today, and I sincerely pray they get better.For we all have a role to fill in this world. Well I am putting this out there to the world. I desire more than anything to fulfill my purpose in this life, but to do so, I need a job.
If you know of anyone who is hiring, or who can help me out, please message me! It would mean the world to me if you can help me with my job search!
In the words of Blessed Louis Brisson, founder of the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales, I leave you with this:
A cardinal who received us in Rome said, “The present day world is nothing more than a large sewer, a swampy marshland.” Do we want to avoid work and remain on the fringes? No, if we want to reach the world and attract it to us to help to save it, we must jump in with both feet, even if that means facing the possibility of getting dirty – really dirty. Let us make it our responsibly to try to sanctify and cleanse it.”
-Bl. Louis Brisson
I want to get dirty. Filthy even. I want to reek of odor of the world if it means bringing it closer to Christ. So please, if you could help me out, message me your email if you have any ideas or know opportunities I can look into. If not, I kindly ask you that you reblog this post and say a little prayer for myself and for all of my peers who are entering religious life this year, that we may more fully discover, and more importantly live how Christ asks of us.
God bless you all!

The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my salvation. Psalm 18:2.
Because of this fact, I’m not as broken as I would be. He is my all. He can carry me through EVERY storm
That was my last all-nighter of my undergrad career.
Now onto my last finals of my undergrad career!
But first a very necessary trip to Dunkin’ Donuts…

Today was my last meeting as a Youth Ministry leader and as a undergrad Buddy of my university’s Frassati Society.
Bittersweet doesn’t begin to describe in all honest. It is a moment of the realization that it is over and that things are changing. We, as seniors, are once again moving on to become adults. While there is fear and trepidation in that, there is an overwhelming sense of hope and excitement of what is yet to come!
This is also a moment of love and joy. Love from my friends, from my youth group kids, from everyone. I’m not ashamed to say I can feel the love and am relishing every moment of it. It is a beauty without words, love is. It leads to joy! Joy of the future for both groups, but also the joy of their friendship and that small hope that I left an imprint on their lives as they did mine.
I’m concluding this sappy post with two things that came out of today. Go in peace and be that peace for others and never forget that to love another is to see the face of God.
