What is your favorite church hymn?  Why?
Set Me As a Seal by Mike Newman, OSFS, is my favorite hymn.  Other favorites include:  All Creatures of Our God and King, Holy God We Praise Thy Name and O God Beyond All Praising.

What book or film remains meaningful for you?  Why?
Book:  Introduction to the Devout Life by Francis de Sales.  Film:  The Deer Hunter.

How do you pray best?
Silent meditation at the beginning of the day.

How do you think Salesian humility can make a difference in the world?
Humility is knowing who and whom you are.  Knowing who we are as unique human beings and what it means to be a human being should lead us to gratitude for the great gift with which we have been blessed - human life.  Wouldn't a more grateful world be a more attractive world in which to live?

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

The opportunity to serve God through serving the Church, especially through celebrating the Sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist.

If a young man were to be inspired by your vocation,what would you hope would inspire him?
Hopefully, if I inspire a young man by my vocation, it would be the way in which I reflected Jesus in the way that I lived my life authentically and transparently.
