Fr. Brian Mullady, OP, on this episode of Vocation Boom! Radio discussed what it is like to evangelize through the media. As an adjunct professor at Holy Apostles College & Seminary in Cromwell, CT, he is involved in educating a growing number of seminarians and priests involved in continuing education.
Fr. Mullady says men are entering the seminary between the ages of 18 and 65, where they extenuate their strengths and are encouraged in the face of their challenges.
Father attended St. Joseph’s School in Los Angeles, where he was an altar server, often times practicing the celebration of Mass during lunch time. He says, “It’s never too young to encourage a vocation.” Fr. Mullady says the best encouragement a person can give to another is their own practice of their faith. He suggested that parents and grandparents can show others through their commitment to their faith and through prayer.
He said an important criteria for a successful seminary candidate is a person that loves people and wants to serve. Fr. Mullady encouraged those who love Christ and want to love as Christ, not to hesitate investigating a priestly vocation.
