"Welcome the stranger in your midst"

Rev. Msgr. Ronald T. Marino

My  father didn't want me to be a Priest. Even though I went to public school and was an altar boy and a kind of "church mouse" when I was a kid, he said “absolutely not” every time I asked him about it. When I finally got the courage to ask him to explain, he said: " you are my only male child and you must pass along the Marino name." It wasn’t until High School was almost finished that he changed his mind hoping that, after a while, I would change mine. That never happened !

 

Now, thirty-six years after my Ordination, more people know the "Marino name" than he could have ever hoped for.
