Last night I was made a deacon. A group of approximately 50 gathered at Estes Chapel on the Campus of Asbury Theological Seminary to witness the public declaration of my vows of fidelity to the scriptures and the catholic faith and my vow of obedience to my Bishop. It was a joyous and solemn occasion. Thanks to everyone who prayed.

I am grateful to the many friends who joyfully served to make the night possible. Last night was another example of how the Church is a sacrament of the Trinitarian life. Tangible acts of human love incarnate the self-giving love God. Wow!

Peace, Peter+
