Twenty-five years ago today (July 9,1994) I professed my first vows as a Capuchin-Franciscan friar in Pittsburgh, PA.  I will never find enough words to thank God for HIS Calling--a calling to follow Jesus (my Savior, Lord and Friend), to be a laborer in His Vineyard, to be His ambassador of loving mercy and compassion.  The Church readings for this day (Tuesday of the 14th Week of Ordinary Time) marvelously express my understanding of Christ's call.  How do you spell coincidence?  GOD (This short reflection was preached during mass at Capuchin College with only friars in attendance).
