Warsaw, Poland, May 28, 2019 / 17:44 pm
May is ordination month in many dioceses, but the ordination of Fr. Michal Los, FDP, a member of the Orionine Fathers, was far from your typical ordination.
On May 24, Los was ordained a priest in his Warsaw hospital bed.
Los was diagnosed with cancer a month ago, and is now in critical condition. Pope Francis granted a dispensation allowing him to be ordained both a deacon and a priest in the same Mass, and Los was ordained by Bishop Marek Solarczyk of the Diocese of Warsaw-Praga.
The day before his ordination, Los made perpetual vows in his religious community. Photos of that were shared on Facebook by Biloxi Vocations, along with a video of his ordination.
