A Call to Catholic Priesthood – Fr Gaurav Shroff - II
Welcome to our special program on the Year of Faith, THE FAITHFUL WITNESS, a series on the lives of Inspiring People and Witnesses of faith in the Catholic Church from around the world. These are people who lived their ordinary lives in extraordinary ways. They are examples of great fortitude and virtue. Their unique stories inspire us to be rooted in our faith. God calls each one of us today to inspire our brothers and sisters and to be witnesses of our faith.
The Faithful Witness of this week is Fr Gaurav Shroff, an American diocesan priest of Indian origin belonging to the Archdiocese of Atlanta. He was ordained a priest a month ago. Born and brought up in an Upper Caste Hindu family in India, Gaurav became a Catholic, attracted by the Gregorian music, and that too while he was still in the College. Later pursuing his secular studies in the US, he listened to his inner prompting to follow his master more closely. In the second part of this interview today Fr Gaurav shares his journey of faith post baptism.
Our Faithful Witness of today, Fr Gaurav Shroff, shares with us his faith experiences, especially since his baptism. Fr Gaurav Shroff welcome back to Vatican Radio. Last week you shared with us your journey of faith to the Catholic Church.
Tell us now what was your parents’ response when you wanted to be baptized.
What happened since your baptism?
But you said you went for geology?
Now you are a diocesan priest. How was your formation experience?
Since your decision to become a Catholic priest, how is your relationship with your family?
That time you must have been in the seminary!
Thank you Fr Gaurav Shroff. That was the second part of an interview with Fr Gaurav Shroff. In the third part of this interview next week, Fr Gaurav will share us his outstanding faith experiences.
