What is your favorite church hymn?
How Great Thou Art, Amazing Grace.

What book or film remains meaningful for you?  Why?
Breakfast Club - I saw the movie on opening might when I was a high school senior.  It portrayed the beauty and pain of our shared insecurities as human beings.  It still speaks to me.  "A Little Life" by Hanya Yanagihara - This book illustrated the grace of friendships, the suffering of abuse and loneliness, and the hope of healing.  Without being dramatic, the book changed my life.

How do you pray best?
Sitting still and centering myself in the presence of God.

How do you think Salesian humility can make a difference in the world?
Salesian humility challenges us all to know who we are and whose we are.  Amid the bombast and incivility of our society, humility is a tonic and balm.

As Pope Francis calls all to live the Gospel with joy, what gives you joy as an Oblate?
What gives me joy as an Oblate is being welcomed into sacred moments of people's and family's lives, such as their experiences of forgiveness, loss, healing, love as well as the historic moments at weddings, baptisms, funerals, and various rites of passage.

If a young man were to be inspired by your vocation, what would you hope would inspire him?
I would hope that he would be inspired by the joy I experience as an Oblate priest.
