Juan Cesar Carrasco Martinez was raised by grandparents who taught him to love Jesus and his Church. He used his grandparents' faith to fall in love with the saints, the Blessed Mother, and the Church.

Martinez says was called to be a priest when he was 8 but decided to take a break from seminary to study computer science. Then, after two years of teaching, he felt an emptiness in my life and approached a priest for spiritual direction.

Now he says his faith has never been stronger, and he is looking forward to serving the people of God.
