God’s Promise is Being Fulfilled

“Your steadfast love is before my eyes; I walk guided by your faithfulness.” – Psalm 26:3

Today marks the one year anniversary of final vows for me. So many of you were there in person at the plaza of Dolores Mission Church or were present in spirit. Thank you for being an integral part of God’s promise being fulfilled in my life.

I remember the celebration with vibrancy: shades of red, yellow, and blue lights streaming through the canopy, colorful outfits that come alive, smiles and laughter on the faces of everyone present – people of Dolores Mission, members of my biological, Jesuit, CLC, LMU, St Bruno, Dorothy Kirby families and friends. All manifestations of Christ, the Church in multicolor.

It is true that we discover our unfolding path and purpose as we live out our commitments deeper. This past year has been a solid and steady confirmation of God’s calling and promise. Recently, my Provincial has given the green light to build a new ministry bridging young adults and the Church (especially the local church). I was ecstatic (and a bit shocked) to receive this news. For God’s promise is being fulfilled. I was delighted, not so much for myself, but for the Church – for God’s people, young and old alike.

Thank you for your continual support of friendship, prayer, and companionship in living out God’s dream for our lives. May you allow the Spirit to lead you to greater life and love – to wherever God’s promise takes you.
