As I leave for Denver, I thank you for all the love and support that you have shown me over the past summer. It's outstanding to see the Lord calling so many men to His Holy Priesthood, that they may lay their lives down for the sake of the Diocese.
It's always a bittersweet moment when one heads back to seminary, but I can assure you that we are all very eager to begin a new semester and a new year. Please continue to pray for docility for all of us, that we may be clay in the hands of the Lord. Certainly, know of my prayers, and I will see you soon. Glory to Jesus Christ! Glory forever.
Ad Iesum Per Mariam,
Kevin Penkalski - Seminarian - Diocese of Phoenix
