Some of you may already be familiar with the incredible story of Fr. Philip Johnson of the Diocese of Raleigh, North Carolina. As a Catholic in the neighboring Charlotte diocese I have followed his difficult, yet beautiful, journey through seminary these past several years, leading up to his ordination earlier this month.
The below video was posted by one of Fr. Johnson’s brother priests in Raleigh, Fr. Ian VanHeusen at his excellent website. It is shared here with his permission.
Please keep Fr. Philip Johnson in your prayers, and let us thank God for the gift of his priesthood. Deo gratias!
