From Pro soccer player to the Priesthood ⚽️🙏🏼

Chase Hilgenbrinck was a successful pro soccer player who spent four seasons in Chile before returning to the U.S. He played for the New England Revolution before experiencing a call to the priesthood and leaving behind his soccer career to enter seminary. In 2014, he was ordained a priest in the diocese of Peoria, Illinois, where he currently serves.

“Everything I learned in sports – such as the sacrifice of training hard, solidarity, working as a team – are things I also have to do in the Christian life. What I experienced in soccer helped me a lot to have all the virtues to lead a good Christian life.”—Father Chase

“Come, Holy Spirit. Spirit of truth, you are the reward of the saints, the comforter of souls, light in the darkness, riches to the poor, treasure to lovers, food for the hungry, comfort to those who are wandering; to sum up, you are the one in whom all treasures are contained. Come! As you descended upon Mary that the Word might become flesh, work in us through grace as you worked in her through nature and grace. Come! Food of every chaste thought, fountain of all mercy, sum of all purity. Come! Consume in us whatever prevents us from being consumed in you.” -St. Mary Magdalene de Pazzi

“Thank you all so much for your prayers and for all of the wonderful support you have given us. Unfortunately, we have received more hard news and need your prayers even more. At the follow-up appointment with our neurosurgeon, we were told that the tumor is worse than originally thought and that I have brain cancer that will need further treatment.
I will be starting radiation and chemotherapy at MD Anderson in July, and the treatment will last between 6-12 months. At this time, there is no cure for this cancer and the statistics of reoccurrence are unfavorable. But nobody knows what the future holds. For all of us, each day is a gift and our Lord is able to do all things.
There is much hope in the research and advancements that are being done at MD Anderson. The goal is to cure cancer. While this calling is critically important and life changing, literally life saving, it isn’t our ultimate hope.
This world is not our home. Suffering exists here because we are made for heaven. We are all broken in some way. Our hope is in Jesus.
I’m so grateful for my life with Kaleb. I want to be here for my girls. I want to watch them grow. I want to teach them to know Jesus and to know their identity of being a beloved daughter of God. I want them to know their worth, the inherent worth of each person and the deep and unwavering love of Jesus. But above all, I want to do God’s will.
Thank you for all of our family, friends, community members and doctors. I know I am not alone. Above all, I want to be a saint. Our mother Mary loves us and intercedes for us. She takes our prayers to her son, Jesus, who loves us so much.
If you know of any blessed saints that are waiting on a miracle for canonization, we would love to know about them and have them intercede on our behalf.
Please pray for our family as we travel the path laid before us. We will fight, we will hope and we will trust in Jesus.
I love each of you.”

My dude Chris Pratt @prattprattpratt! Thank you for using your platform to remind everyone watching to pray and do good, remember that they have a soul + a God who loves them, and to courtesy flush 😂. This is the most refreshing thing I’ve seen on the internet in a long time. I’ve been praying for the conversion of hearts in Hollywood and I’m grateful to see how Jesus is Lord in Starlord’s heart. #witness #faith #hope #love #Jesus #hollywood #mtv

Roma Day 16: today’s highlight hands down was spending the evening with Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke who joined us for dinner, a great discussion capped off with a Rosary. I am always amazed at how gracious and generous he is. He has been unfairly characterized by some, so please pray for him and the important ministry he does for the Church. Besides classes, we also went to a number of beautiful churches and found a film crew on our roof when we got home. Just another amazing day here in the Eternal City.
