About the Documentary


Ready and Able: A Vincentian Story

Following two newly ordained Vincentian Catholic priests during their first year of ministry, this candid documentary captures the joy of living a vocation, the challenges of serving others, and how to find hope in a pandemic.

Frs. Leo Tiburcio, CM, and Luis Romero, CM, are young Vincentian men on a mission to “serve Christ in the poor.” With unfettered access and honest commentary, this documentary follows Leo and Luis on their first-year journey that was a decade in the making. From being hometown celebrities, to praying over patients in hospitals, to ministering in the ‘new world’ of a global pandemic, one thing is clear: these men are ready and able.


The film is 14 minutes, 30 seconds, and is a co-production of the Vincentians of the Eastern Province and the Central Association of the Miraculous Medal.
