Priest Ordination Today

2007 Miami OrdinationToday, I was at the Cathedral for the ordination of 4 new priest to the Archdiocese of Miami.  It was AWESOME!  Since I’ve never been to one, I thought it would just be a long Mass with the Archbishop and lots of people that I’ve never met before.  Well, it was all of that, but way cooler!  The organ music, choir, 150+ priests, layout of the Mass, the applause, the families, the … EVERYTHING was a emotion-filled worship experience that can’t be put into words.  It was surreal.  I didn’t feel worthy to sit in the 5th pew (behind immediate family with other seminarians) to participate in such a celebration with all those priest and faithful united in the Eucharist.  I especially liked Archbishop’s homily and how each of the 150+ priest laid hands in prayer on each new priest followed by a hug.  It was powerful!
