Everyone loves to work. We can do a number of errands to get money. Victor Opiyo understands the walks of many journalists. He has walked the race for quite sometime. He has been on a fight. What fight does a journalist has to endure for quite sometime? Was he fighting for a story to be covered? Was he fighting to win CNN recognition?
The sports writer at Nation Media Group has decided to call it quits. As others fight for land and recognition, Victor is fighting to overcome a calling. He has decided to join priesthood. The 29 year old reminisces of being introduced to Catholicism when he was 6 months.
When did it commence…
“At the age of 12, I became an Altar Boy in my home parish, Nangina Catholic church. This was a year after finishing my catechism classes that culminated into receiving my first Holy Communion.” He asserted
Victor felt the call at a tender age. A year and a half ago, the call became stronger. He did reach out to Fr. Terry Charlton to inquire for a chance. He now hopes to join a new life and serve humanity as a priest.

WHAT WAS THE FIGHT?
Every humanity has a calling. For Victor, priesthood is something that has been a push and he says : “Life is a fight and in that fight it doesn’t matter how hard you hit or how well you fight.What matters is how hard you can get hit, and keep on fighting,’ St Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus popularly known as the Jesuits, said in one of his writings. Inspired by this, I have made one of the toughest decisions to “keep on fighting” by leaving my virtuous job at Nation Media Group . We wish him well on his new step.
