I am not from the catholic faith, but seeing how this man serves God makes the sacrifices he makes inspires me. May God bless him and keep encouraging him to continue his walk with God.

Fr Benjamin is a good person who shows us the way to follow the light of God. That's true it's difficult to him to live apart of his family but he has found the God's family in each parish that he serves. Thanks for your faith father

I thought the scene where he was speaking to his family around the fire was interesting because one has to wonder how becoming a priest would change someones relationship with their family and would they cease to be a son and a brother and become the family priest?

Thank you for your many sacrifices. You're right, we do need priests here in the US. Your family is far away, but we are your flock and we are here, and we want and need you. My prayers for you and your family, especially your lovely mother. I'm just one generation removed from when Irish families also offered one child to God. How fortunate we are to still have such mothers, as well as their sons to inspire us. kait

I'm a novice with the Salesians of Don Bosco- I'm 3,000 miles away from home to be a Salesian novice and all in all, by the time ordination comes around I will have spent 8 or so out of the 10 years of formation a considerable distance from friends and family.

Thou art a priest forever! Blessings, and thank you for serving. You and your family are in my prayers. Viva La Virgen de Guadalupe! Viva Cristo Rey!

Benji, I know how you feel. God calls us to where he wants us. Far from home that may be ... but we find a new home, and comfort in closeness with God. Blessings on you!
