- How does it feel to celebrate 75 years as a priest?
I feel it has been a great privilege to celebrate Mass over all these years. I really feel blessed for my vocation and for the tremendous things God has done for me.
- What advice do you have for young priests who are just embarking on their voyage with God?
Stay close to the Church and be faithful to its teachings in all matters and have a strong prayer life. Remember that holiness is our principal calling. Remember that the greatest evil in the Church today is the contraceptive mentality. It is important to preach the truths of Humanae vitae regularly.
- Anything you’d like to add?
I would like to share with you a copy of a special letter I received on behalf of Pope Francis, from the Papal Nuncio, which Cardinal Thomas Collins read at the beginning of his homily for the occasion of my 75th Ordination Anniversary this year. (It is posted on my website).
God bless you,
Msgr. Vincent Foy
