Sharing Faith Experiences – Fr Gaurav Shroff - III
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 two months 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 and opted to become a priest. In the third and final part of this interview today Fr Gaurav shares his journey of faith and more.
Our Faithful Witness today, Fr Gaurav Shroff, shares with us his faith experiences, and his plan for the ministry ahead as a priest. Fr Gaurav Shroff welcome back to Vatican Radio. Last week you shared with us your journey to Priesthood.
Now, tell us have ever encountered a difficult situation where your faith came as a help?
Does your faith in some way affect the people of other faiths?
It’s Catholic Church’s year of faith now. How does it enhance the faith of the people?
There is a general perception that the youth are away from the church. Is it true?
Media also create a vacuum of relationship by creating virtual relationship, right?
Shortly you will be in a parish. What would be your priorities?
What is your message for the people?
That was the final part of an interview with Fr Gaurav Shroff.
