More gripping than the pull of professional sports, the call to the priesthood reveals the great plans God has for those he has called.
In this homily, Fr. Burke Masters tells the story of his journey through baseball, to Catholicism and eventually to the priesthood.
In a bonus segment, Major League Baseball all-star Mike Sweeney discuss being the perfect teammate with examples from his time in the pros.
Fr. Burke Masters
really enjoyed listening to his story!
Father Burke Masters is a truly humble man who walks the talk. He loves Jesus and it shows in his face and comes through in his voice. He shared his journey to the Catholic faith and then his calling to the priesthood. We are better for having him in our lives and representing our Faith. He is the poster child of God for Vocations.
