SACERDOTUS

Sacerdotus is a former Atheist named Michael, native of New York City, but living in Boston, Massachussetts.  He is a Blogger, Radio Talk Show host on BlogTalkRadio, Future Priest, and undergraduate level Scientist & Philosopher.  

Why "Sacerdotus?"
He uses the pseudonym "Sacerdotus" because it was used in the past to designate a minor order for those studying for the priesthood.  A "Sacerdotus" was a "minor priest" or "simple priest" see: (Solanus Casey).  He prefers using this pseudonym out of humility just like "Dr. Seuss" preferred to be referred to under that pseudonym so that his audience can solely focus on his writing instead of himself.  

What is with the XP Symbol?
One of Sacerdotus' favorite Biblical mottos is from Galatians 2:20 which reads: 

"My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me."

This is why Sacerdotus uses the "Chi Rho" to represent himself because it is not he who lives but Christ living in Him.  Sacerdotus wants Christ to be the focus, not the guy behind "Sacerdotus."

The Chi Rho is a monogram (XP) that Constantine had placed on the Labarum with the words, "in hoc signo vinces" or "with this sign you will be victorious."   He had a vision of it in the sky during the battle.  After he had the monogram and words engraved on the shields of his Roman soldiers, he and his army won.  He then converted to Catholicism after realizing that this monogram of "XP" which stands for "Christ" came from Christianity which convinced him that Catholicism's God was the one and true God and helped him.   Afterward, he would give the old pagan temples to the Catholic Church and power to the Pope.  Sacerdotus uses this monogram because all he wants to do is preach Christ and not himself.

Personal message:
I used to be an atheist most of my life and now am Catholic. My studies in the sciences led me to the conclusion that natural random processes are not the causal factor of our universe and of life on Earth. I blog, host a radio show and perform many ministries within the Church in order to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ.   My favorite hobbies are reading, science, religion, philosophy, research sports, music, video games and engaging in debates.  I have degrees in the sciences and philosophy and am also a fellow in several honor societies.
