Priests are fantastic! One such "fantastic priest" has been such a blessing in my life. I had dominated for about a year with some very troubling health concerns which affected every aspect of my life. I spent this time praying constantly to God, but still felt this need to discuss the issues with a priest. I did not feel comfortable talking to my parish priest or the catholic chaplain at college. It was then that I participated in a pilgrimage that included World Youth Day in Rome with the Holy Father. On this fantastic pilgrimage I met Fr. Dave Pivonka, TOR. I decided on that trip that I needed to talk to someone and I instinctively picked him. His wisdom, support, and prayers helped me reach the final state of healing and really begin to cope more effectively with my situation. He has touched so many people’s lives and I am so blessed to have such a wonderful priest that I can call my friend. Thanks Fr. have no idea how much you’ve helped me. God bless the priests of our fantastic Roman Catholic faith!
