What's It Like to be Ordained?

A few years ago, 4 Augustinians were ordained to the priesthood.  It was a long journey for each of them to get there.  Where are they now?  Today, two of them serve in parishes as Associate Pastors, one of them is working in a Catholic high school, and one is studying for his Doctorate in the United Kingdom!

But what's it like to actually be ordained?  To receive the Sacrament of Holy Orders?

Enjoy the 4-minute video below that showed Fr. Robert Basler, OSA and Fr. Homero Sanchez, OSA becoming ordained Augustinian priests!  It shows highlights from the ordination ceremony and excerpts from their speeches:

What do you think?  Do you have questions about the Priesthood?  The Brotherhood?  Let us know in the comments below!
