On the 6th of October, Sebastian Maly SJ, Clemens Kascholke SJ and Jörg Nies SJ were ordained to the priesthood in Frankfurt/M. by Bishop Georg Bätzing (Limburg).

More than 800 guests - including families, friends and many Jesuits - gathered in the Cathedral of St. Bartholomew in Frankfurt.

Bishop Bätzing spoke in his sermon about consolation and vocation: “Only who knows himself exactly and knows what he wants, will also know what God wants from him. ... Finding the will of God is closely connected with getting involved in one's own path of life. ... This shows a specific understanding of vocation, namely that man in the totality of his destinies may be understood as a call of God. He does not receive the call of God, he is ‘God's call’.” Subsequently, the three candidates for ordination gave the first blessing to the faithful. Afterwards there was the possibility to congratulate the newly ordained priests at the reception in the "Haus am Dom". Their first mass the newly ordained celebrated one day later in the Jesuit Church St. Ignatius in Frankfurt.
