I too celebrate 25 years in June and I applaud your work. Your mention of Samuel and Eli, not only here, but in one of your homilies, helps to put this all in perspective. Thanks for all you do and Happy Annivrsary!

This is very encouraging to read, especially since I am doing me best to answer the call to the priesthood. Please keep me in your prayers, as I will continue to keep you in mine. Congrats on you 25 years

Fr. Barron - Thanks be to God for all that you do. This weekend was an experience of heaven on earth. My family was blessed to have been invited to witness, participate and celebrate the Scrament of Holy Orders at the Cathedral of Lady of Angels in Los Angeles. Truly an unfolding of Heavenly Liturgy and Revelation. A humbling experience to witness holy men consecrated to Jesus. Blessed be God, it is indeed, a greart time to be a priest.

Many successful years are ahead for you!
As far as the scandals, there are plenty of examples and you mentioned those associated with the the saints and scandals, where the Church was just plain decadent. Although current scandals are hideous, they may be pale when held up to other centuries of misdeeds. One step back, and two steps forward seems to be the motto.

Peace Father,I saw you at the Eucurist congress in Atlanta almost two weeks ago and i visited the table.Ive been thinking about studing to join the faith starting in August.I might be about to lose my home so maybe it wont even happen.Like everyone the scandals with the priesthood made me sad and angry.Even at the pope.You see you must understand most of us will never have a vision like the children of Fatima or many other saints and seers so will see God in our priest and Holy men.When they fall and betray trust.Its hard for that trust to ever come back.And i guess its because it hurts.I ALSO WOULD LIKE TO CONGRADULATE YOU ON 25 YEARS OF BEING A GOOD PRIEST.Please stay that way and dont let the devil bring you down.Peace,Norman
