Father Ryan Holke
My name is Ryan and I am a Father Kolbe Missionary of the Immaculata, which means that I belong to an Institute of Consecrated Life. As a consecrated person, I live out the vows of Poverty, Chastity and Obedience. In 2004 I traveled to Brazil as a volunteer for six months, and in this time, I learned about Saint Maximilian Kolbe, the Militia of the Immaculata, and the Institute to which I now belong. As time passed in those six months, I felt that Jesus was calling me and I could not but say "yes!". Now, my life is dedicated to building up the Civilization of Love, seeking to love and to serve each person who comes into my life, and letting myself be transformed by Mary day by day so that I may be more and more like her son Jesus. What about you; ever felt like God was calling you to something?
