For My Brother Seminarian
« on: December 23, 2005, 01:17:53 PM »
When it rains it pours....

I have also learned that a fellow seminarian at Holy Cross has suffered a mild heart attack. He has apparently recovered, but he is recovering from an operation to implant several stents. He just started his program this fall.

Please pray for him, his wife, and their children. My understanding is that he is likely to recover, but that it stands to reason he may be wondering if he should still continue this program, along with other questions he must be asking. Thanks!

Quote from: Fr Alexander Schmemann
The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

Of course, is not reflective of the Church, but is rather a surreal bubble. I have visited a lot of different parishes around the world and have listened to many hours of AFR...
