A good priest is worth his weight in gold. Such a priest was Fr. Peter Carota, now deceased.
We pray for him, as we must indeed all, but I would like to think that he needs our prayers less than most, although we are not to judge someone's eternal destiny, of course.
What is certain is that Fr. Peter Carota helped many a people grow in the faith, myself included, and for that those he enlightened will be ever grateful to him.
