The greatest joy I have ever known

by Fr. Jeff

“This Easter, I have a feeling, is going to be something special.” I remember one of classmates saying that as we talked about entering into our first Triduum as priests.

All day long, the question has been the same: “Fr. Jeff, how was your Easter?”

The calling of the priest is to proclaim the great mystery of God’s love. With the proclaiming of that mystery comes the satisfaction and joy of a vocation-fulfilled.

Each time the question was asked, my answer was the same, too: it’s

the greatest joy I have ever known.
