Why did you become a seminarian?

Since I was a child, God has called me to be close to Him. As I have grown, that call, and my answer and love for Him, have also grown. God has asked me to follow His example as The Good Shepherd and become His priest. I responded by saying “Yes” to serving Him and, and in this way, give my life to the service of the Church. “Para mayor gloria De Dios.”

Before you entered the seminary, what were you doing?

I was studying in high school, working as a carpenter at the same time, and also helping in my parish.

An interesting fact about you

One time I began driving at 2am from Illinois to Mexico and I kept driving for 24 hours without rest, just stopping to fill up the gas tank, and now I really don’t know how do I did it, but we arrived as soon as we had to arrive.
