The Jesuit Was, "A Really. Really Good Guy"

Sent to study in England at the age of 16, he said he was not religious at all between the ages of 17 and 21. Then he met a Jesuit priest, “a really, really good guy,” who planted the idea of priesthood in his heart and suggested he enter the Legionaries in Dublin, Ireland.

He said he thought the priesthood would be “social suicide, to be quite honest. I was not one of those guys who go into the seminary with a big smile on their faces, but I knew deep down it was the right thing. When I left London to go to Dublin was one of the last times I cried seriously.”

Ordained on Christmas Eve 1997, he left the Legionaries in 2002, the same year he began working full time for Opera Romana.
