The Seminaries


How do we as Catholics affect the quality and orthodoxy of seminaries? What can we do? Where do we begin?




I really do not know what can be done in the particular. There are seminaries that span the spectrum from ultra-traditionalist to ultra-progressive. I do know that we can pray for our leaders…for our Pope, our Bishops, our Priests and Religious, our Lay leaders. We can pray that God raises up and refines candidates for the priesthood and religious life, as well as solid Christ-centered candidates for lay ministries.

Somehow God’s Holy Spirit seems to find a way to cut through all of this for us and it all works out in the end.
