My second year as an internal seminarian(external my first year) and to tell you the truth, I couldn't be happier! The priesthood and seminary life offers many challenges and Our Lord is holding up a mirror to see all my inadequacies, deficiencies and weaknesses. This year has been ripe with emotional turmoil, friends getting married, always being 'on call' for everybody, and living my diocesan assignment as part of the PAVO. (Pastorale des vocations) Loneliness can at times set in, (even other desires, girls, and money) but trusting in God has been an incredibly fulfilling experience. I hope to return to more consistent blogging in the future, and I promise that I will issue a post on this Quebec Charter,..(Every time I speak of it, I get the urge to go to the bathroom..)
In the meantime, I wish everyone a very happy and Holy Christmas season! May the joy of Christ, born a new in our hearts and lives continue to be the source of Grace for a troubled world! Continue praying, continue training!
