Serving His best wine

Coming to the priesthood in his senior years, Archbishop Jason Gordon anticipated that as the best wine was served last at the wedding feast of Cana, Kenneth Reginald Vieira had “saved the best wine for last”.  The 78-year-old grandfather and retired lawyer was ordained to the priesthood last Saturday (August 4) at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Port of Spain.

His prayer for Fr Vieira was “…the wine of your life that you would offer to God through the priesthood would be a finer, and more beautiful and more tasty wine than anything you could have offered in the whole rest of your life. That configured to Christ, you would be a sign to His Church of God’s unfailing and abiding love, and through your ministry many, many people will come to know Jesus Christ.”
