Someone once said something along the lines of, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
The Bitter Pill (aka The Tablet aka RU-486) has a story that 130 year old Wonersh Seminary in England will close at the end of this academic year. The seminarians will go to Allen Hall in London.
With ‘great sadness’, trustees decide Wonersh must close
The seminary, whose motto is Spes messis in semine – the hope of the harvest is in the seed – currently has 17 students, from the Dioceses of Southwark, Arundel and Brighton, Clifton and Portsmouth. Of these, six are due to complete their formation next summer. There were no new admissions this year. Of the 11 remaining, five will be deacons in their final year.
Just keep on doing what you are doing until ALL the seminaries are closed.
Then will you be happy?
Or is it time to try something different?
