"As a young man my Father was called to the priesthood."
- Larry R. Cappetto
“Every Holy Mass heard with devotion produces in our souls marvelous effects, abundant spiritual and material graces.”
- St. Padre Pio
My Father, Robert William Cappetto, was called to the priesthood at a very early age. He entered Holy Cross Seminary in Indiana at the age of 14. At the age of 23 he entered Holy Cross Abbey Monestary in Chicago to study to become a priest. Unfortunately things didn't work out and he pursued his passion of music and playing the trumpet.
Growing up I too felt called to the priesthood. I liked being around priests. I served faithfully as an altar boy. These are some of my most fondest memories as a young Catholic boy.
"Faith is a pilgrimage with God, for this I know. Faith is a long, lonely, difficult road on the pathway to Heaven. There can be no other way if your hearts desire is truly to see God." (Larry Cappetto - July 14, 2018).
Today, I have once again found my peace in the Catholic Church. This is where I first learned about Jesus. I have come full circle. I am back where I belong in the Catholic faith.
