We find in these words pronounced last year, the desire of Fr. Jesús to receive this great gift of the priesthood, but not for himself but for others, in full awareness and joy.
In his homily, the bishop Angel Caraballo recalls the vocational witness of Fr. Jesús, above all the fact that Our Lord told him that he did not want just a few years of his life, but his whole life. It also emphasizes what a priest is, that is, a man consecrated to God. A man who prays for the action of evangelization to be effective and bear fruit. The identity of the priest is to be Christ, and as a consequence, a man fully dedicated to the people given to him.
