I was my great pleasure this morning to have breakfast with four seminarians. They read that I would be in town and contacted me.
These men are all bright and intensely focused on their studies and the Church. They are interested in and open to the older form of Mass in a very healthy way, without taking away anything due to the Novus Ordo.
If, God willing, they persevere to ordination, people will have solid men will good minds, prayerful spirits, kind hearts and NO BAGGAGE.
We talked about their courses, liturgy, politics, life and the world in general, war stories for my seminary days… so very different from their seminary experience now, thanks be to God.
I was impressed and I compliment their bishops, vocation directors, pastors, family and rector for these good catches.
It leaves one boyant and hopeful.
