Closer to Seminary

Thursday, June 08, 2006

I am closer to the college seminary program. If all goes well, I will be studying for my diocese, at St. John Vianney College Seminary on the grounds of the University of St. Thomas, in Minnesota. Though I have spoken that the only reason I would not attend that program is because of Archbishop Flynn. If you do not know, Archbishop Flynn silenced Fr. Altier, a priest who encouraged many vocations, and sent him to a nursing home, because he was preaching truth. In addition, Archbishop Flynn banned the Legion from practicing in the Diocese becasue of their traditional and conservative viewpoints.

However, I will not let Archbishop Flynn stop my vocation. I have heard that the seminary there is the epidomy of hope for the future of Minnesota. It is training many good orthodox men for the priesthood; they foster marian devotion and eucharistic adoration.

Anyways, I am closer to seminary, becasue of the following:

My bishop is writing me a letter of recommendation to get into the college.

I have scheduled a visit, admissions interview and interview at SJV.

By the grace of God, I will be a seminarian for my diocese by the fall of 2007. However, if I do not get in at the UST, I then will not have the sponsorship of the diocese, but would study independently at the Pre-Theologate at the Franciscan University of Steubenville.

Please keep me in your prayers as I discern my calling.

In Christ Jesus our Lord,

Ed L.
