Thanks for visiting my site! My name is Fr. Nick Meisl and I am a Roman Catholic Priest of the Archdiocese of Vancouver, Canada. I was ordained in December 2013. After parish ministry for about a year and a half I was sent for further studies in Sacred Scripture at the Pontifical Biblical Institute in Rome. As part of this program, I am currently spending a semester studying in Jerusalem.

While in a parish, I mainly use this blog to post my Sunday homilies. Since I have been studying again, I generally post about where I am living and what I am learning. 

I chose the name of this blog Deas Caritas Est (God is Love, in Latin) after one of my favorite passages of scripture, 1 John 4:16:
We have come to know and to believe in the love God has for us. God is love, and whoever remains in love remains in God and God in him.
