Watch: On the Path to the Priesthood | Thomas Watza

Of your charity, please pray for 21-year-old Thomas Watza who is currently studying for the sacred priesthood at Saint John Vianney College Seminary in Minnesota. Thomas hails from the parish of Saint Patrick in Brighton.

As as a boy Thomas began to believe that he was "God’s one mistake and failure" such that he was filled with "anger, worry, anxiety, and self-hatred". All that changed in an instant, however, when he was nine or ten years old when, one night, Thomas was in his bedroom and accidentally turned on the radio. What happened? Watch this short video to find out!

Please also remember Thomas, and all the Diocese of Lansing seminarians, in your prayers. Saint Charles Borromeo, patron of seminarians, pray for them!
