I am 35 years old, and I am a seminarian for the Diocese of Richmond. I began studies in the fall of 2012 at the Theological College at Catholic University in Washington, DC. God willing, I will be ordained a priest in 2018.
I have been fortunate enough to be the Confirmation Sponsor for several awesome kids. One of them, Marc Barnes, runs an excellent Catholic Blog - Bad Catholic... check it out!
The Diocese of Richmond has a great video on the 2012 Ordinations of Rev. Chris Hess, Rev. Joe Goldsmith, Rev. Carlos Lerma, and Rev. Sean Prince:
Fr. Thomas King, SJ (1929-2009) - A Georgetown Jesuit Giant
Since the late 90s, when I was a student at UVA, I have been a fan of
Fr. Thomas King, SJ. I often used to go to the 11:15 pm mass at
Georgetown on my way back to Charlottesville after weekend visits at
my parents' house in Silver Spring. Fr. King's homilies were the most
moving and intellectually stimulating that I had ever heard. Needless to say, when I heard Fr.
King passed away in 2009, I was truly saddened. In the years since
then, I have occasionally searched for YouTube or other sources of his
homilies, since I knew they had been recorded. I felt great joy when I
found out that now, finally, there were
YouTube uploads of Fr. King's homilies. I would like to contribute
five homilies from the fall of 1999 from a tape I had purchased at the
end of that semester.
