Fr. Jack Podsiadlo and My Brother

A few notes:

Quotable:

“There are certain people that come into your life and alter its course, ones that open a path once non existent. Father Jack, thank you for all of the work you’ve done in the Lower East Side and with Nativity. You’re a legend, a hero. So many things fell into place for [Jose] and I because of your help and work. ‘Opportunity is Nativity’s gift to you. What you do with that gift is your gift to Nativity’ Thanks for the opportunity to see my potential; this is just the beginning.”

– Rafael Balbi Jr. (my brother) on the legend, Fr. Jack Podsiadlo
