Priestly Ordination

On the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart, June 15, 2012, I was ordained to the priesthood by  Christoph Cardinal Schönborn, together with five other men, in St. Stephen's Cathedral, Vienna.

6 new priests, with cardinal Schönborn and the rectors and religious superior.

Please say a prayer in thanksgiving for the grace of this vocation, and that the Lord make us holy and good instruments of his work!

  1. Congratulations from a reader in Thailand! (I found your site because your book has been an immense help to me.) Will pray in thanksgiving and petition.

  2. Salve! I have just taken your photo with the rest of the delegates at the theology of vocation conference, and only now has it struck me that you are the Joseph Bolin to whom I referred on my little blog last year, in particular to your excellent paper on three approaches to vocation discernment.

    Then you were a seminarian, but now freshly ordained! Blessings on you and your ministry. Ad multos annos.


  3. Congratulations father ! I am writing you from Vancouver, Canada. I am a young Dominican (made my first vows last year). I was really happy to discover your website pathsoflove, specially your clear presentation of the main texts of Aquinas and saints on religious life…

    May our Lord and Mary mother of all priests keep you on the path of divine love. <> said Bl. Mother Teresa !
