Personality by Pixels

What living person most reflects the joy of the Gospel for you?
Pope Francis.

Pope Francis is a Jesuit who chose the name of St. Francis of Assisi.  Some have said he pastorally resembles St. Francis de Sales.  What is Salesian about Pope Francis?
His emphasis on God’s love and mercy.

What is your favorite dimension of being an Oblate of St. Francis de Sales?
Knowledge and practice of Salesian spirituality.

How do you think Salesian gentleness can make a difference in the world?
It will counteract the violence we see all around us.

What is the most recent book you read?  Would you recommend it?
I reread the KORAN.  It was helpful in learning about the Muslims in general and understanding the radical Muslim roots.

Name an Oblate who taught you an important lesson that has remained with you.  What did he teach you?
Fr. John Conmy:  Live in the present moment.

What advice could you give to a young person interested in religious life?
Prayerfully ask God if it is His will for you.

How do you think religious life serves the church and world in a way that is unique from our brothers and sisters who are single, married, or diocesan priests?
Our vows permit us to offer a greater intensity of service to others in need.
