As a young adult, he decided to become a priest. After serving as an associate parish priest for five years, Fr. Rother decided to volunteer to serve as a priest in Guatemala.

The Maya people have been weaving textiles for use in clothing for thousands of years. Today different towns and communities are known for their own patterns and motifs. For many years, the origin of these different patterns has been attributed to the Spanish Conquistadors. However, Maya people are challenging the idea that these different patterns are a result of colonization. They know that these regional variations have been around long before any contact by the Spanish.
