My actual name is
I am not a priest except in the context of 1 Peter 2:9, "But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people
belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His
wonderful light." I, like all Christians, belong to the priesthood of believers.
The term "Padre" is, in reality, merely a term of endearment. It's the term my
grandchildren use in referring to me.
