How did they know?
My father simply said, “Well, you want that. It’s quite serious. If you do it, do it well.” So in September 1949, when I was 18, I went to Paris to join the MEP seminary.
Soft-spoken Christopher is proud of his Catholic education, at St. Michael’s School, St Joseph’s Institution and Catholic Junior College.
Since I entered the seminary at age 11, I will celebrate my 65th year in the priesthood this year. So if a young man wants to be a priest, he should enter the seminary quickly. I would also say, “Don’t be afraid. Pray every day. God is with you.”
Through the good things that people saw in me, I could introduce what God was about and say, “You can be just as good if you are in a relationship with Him.”
When I was in Primary 6, a friend wrote in my birthday card, “I have come so that you may have life and have it abundantly (John 10:10).” I was intrigued at what this could possibly mean.
