A friend and student here at Mundelein Seminary, Nick Blaha, is studying for the priesthood with the Archdiocese of Kansas City. He’s spending part of his summer in El Salvador at an orphanage called Nuestros Pequenos Hermanos (sorry about the lack of tilde) which does great work taking care of orphaned and abandoned children in Latin America and the Caribbean. He’s made a few video clips for his blog for his family and friends to show what he is doing down there, but I think they would be edifying for a larger audience… first, to show the great caliber of men we have going into the priesthood these days (also handy with a video camera), and second, to show what good work NPH is doing. It’s heartwarming to watch. If you ever wondered if Sally Struthers‘ commercials for feeding starving children were legit and didn’t donate, here you have first hand evidence of great work being done for children who would otherwise be living on the very dangerous streets. It takes a few minutes to watch them, but I promise it will be worth it. I was especially struck by the quote painted on the wall at the end of the second video. It’s a good reminder for all of us.
