What is your favorite church hymn?  Why?
Spirit and Grace by Ricky Manalo.  It has it all:  Eucharist, Holy Spirit, Community.

What book or film remains meaningful for you?  Why?
Between the World and Me.  In Mr. Coates book, I get a glimpse of the world that my Nativity students come from and though I can never truly understand it, I can choose to enter it and be okay with the discomfort.

How do you pray best?
With music.  In a quiet chapel.

How do you think Salesian humility can make a difference in the world?
The path to all true knowledge starts with knowing who you are and whose you are.

As Pope Francis calls all to live the Gospel with joy, what gives you joy as an Oblate?

The work I do, the people I minister to and with , and the Oblates I share this life with.

If a young man were to be inspired by your vocation, what would you hope would inspire him?
I hope he would be inspired by my willingness to stay in the fore and encounter God on each moment of this journey.
