have begotten you,’” he said.
Fr. Thomas Salazar, LC, shared
a “pictorial” testimony of his vocation story, with photos of

led him “little by little” to the realization of his
call within the Legion.
At the end of the evening, the
families of those with Legionary and consecrated vocations were recognized
with flowers and applause.
