I've covered Arlington Bishop Paul S. Loverde for many years
at many different events. A common theme in many of his
sermons and talks is his love of the priesthood. He's been a
priest for more than 50 years.

his life as a priest.
In his March 8 sermon at Holy Spirit Church in Annandale he
repeated that statement, this time to a church full of
diocesan eighth-graders at the annual Vocations Mass.
He said those words with such sincerity, that I wouldn't be
surprised if he started a few students on the road to
