A Man Can Have No Greater Love

Congratulations to Fr Craig Szmidt, ordained priest for Birmingham Archdiocese on Saturday. At the ordination in St Wulstan's parish Wolstanton, Archbishop Bernard referred to Jesus' words: "A man can have no greater love than to lay down his life for his friends." The Archbishop said to Craig that the Lord was asking him as a priest to lay down his life for his friends - not the friends of his own choosing, but those that would be given to him through his day to day ministry.

May Fr Craig have many blessings in his priestly life, and make many unexpected friends!
