Brandon Badillo


College I to IV

Home Parish: Prince of Peace
Seminary: Saint Joseph Seminary College

“My name is Brandon Badillo and I am 20 years old. I am currently in my second year of formation towards the priesthood at St. Joseph Seminary College in Saint Benedict, Louisiana. I am a native son of Houston, Texas and I grew up attending Holy Mass at Prince of Peace Catholic Church in Tomball, Texas. I have a total of 13 siblings, in which I am the 3rd child. Ever since I was a 7 year old boy I’ve longed to be a priest. Having reflected on how the Lord called me, I came to the conclusion that the call is just there imprinted in my heart and mind. I had no grand sign like many others but was just able to be attracted towards the priesthood. The thought of being able to administer the sacraments and bring Christ Jesus to the people has been a great motivation and a joy for me. One of my favorite saints, Blessed Rolando Rivi, always said “I belong to Jesus”. This motto stayed with me and I really try to emulate that motto by my life. May that all be our prayer; let us always remember that Christ is our source and our summit – we belong to him and none other. In my free time I like to play tennis, watch comedy and action movies, read books written by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. “
