Able to communicate in five languages, Sarraf said that his goal in life was “to do God’s will in whichever way it manifested itself.”
“In the early years that meant doing different projects, taking care of different apostolic activities and construction projects for facilities that would be used for Opus Dei’s apostolates,” he said.
“Over the last four or five years there was more focus on preparing for the priesthood, even though I continued with many of the tasks I had before,” he added.
Sarraf said his decision to become a priest became “crystallized” in 2017, and he moved to Spain to pursue a master’s degree in theology at the University of Navarre.
He then pursued his doctorate in spiritual theology in Rome in 2020.
