Food is very important to life, and impacts our ability to function.
The future priests require food to fuel their discernment. This is not limited to physical nourishment. Each seminarian requires a spiritual nutrition, in order to pass on what he has received now to the faithful to whom he will later administer, God willing.
I can provide at least one of these types of nourishment.
Today's menu featured from scratch items as beef and vegetable stew, cheese sandwiches, stir-fry vegetables with ham on a bed of basmati rice, three-layer cake, and rice pudding (as a dessert after Mass).
Day two was spent mainly in the kitchen, preparing meals and planning for a week's worth of food. The less the seminarians have to worry about, the better.
I hope I can continue to provide the with delicious and nutritious meals daily.
Meals are only one part of the agenda for the thirty days in Boston. What else might be on the menu? Stay tuned to find out.
