Today is first Friday. The seminary has all-night adoration, and the seminarians are each taking an hour to spend time with Our Lord. An hour is perfect time to reflect, and to ask God for the graces necessary to continue the fight for the faith, and to continue to pursue a vocation.
It is good to be within walking distance of the most Blessed Sacrament. This is a privilege that very few people have these days. When the opportunity arises, it is best to make the most of it.
The seminary is in need of brothers in order to function more smoothly. I would say that three brothers would be sufficient for this apostolate. There might not be many seminarians, but there is a lot of land, which means plenty of potential for growth and development.
It would be good for them also to run the seminary websites, another to tend to the animals, and another to oversee domestic duties. This is just an example of how three brothers could be very helpful in expanding the apostolate.
Father Pfeiffer leaves tomorrow to take the Mass and the sacraments to those on his expansive apostolate. Father Hewko will remain to ensure a priestly presence at the seminary.
God willing, these seminarians will always have access to daily Mass, and to a spiritual advisor. That has been the case so far this seminary year. It was not always the case, however, as the seminarians missed all too many Masses last year, and the year prior.
I feel that this year will be different, but we shall see how it all turns out.
I guess we'll keep plugging away this weekend.
