I Love Being a Priest!

Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,

I type this to you just after celebrating Holy Mass on the seventh anniversary of my ordination to the Priesthood of Jesus Christ. I love being a priest! I love being Father to you, whether as a pastor, chaplain, or just "that guy I knew from _________ who became a priest." As I said after my first month of ministry, it feels as though I have always been a priest. This is what I was made for by our loving God.

My ministry has had its share of ups and downs, but I am sustained by the Eucharist that I am blessed and humbled to celebrate. I take Jesus' words from our Gospel to heart: "Do not be afraid; you are worth many sparrows." God put me in this role of service, and He will sustain me. So "Sing to the LORD, praise the LORD, for he has rescued the life of the poor."

Peace in Christ,

Father Matthew Kuhn
