Another great little video which will be of special interest to anyone wondering if God might be nudging them to consider life as a diocesan priest. A couple of great one-liners in the video including “a seminary is a training-ground for faith” and “there is no better place to discern a call to priesthood than in seminary.” Feel free to share this link with anyone you think might benefit from broadening their life-choice options.
Most people think of the Ascension of Jesus as being a ‘departure’ moment. Jesus was here and now he is gone. We imagine Jesus going up into the clouds and the disciples waving farewell from below.
This is an unhelpful image.
It is essential that we understand what does happen and what does not happen in the Ascension event.
It would be easy to wrongly think that in his ministry showed us how to build the city of God on earth, and now he has gone and the mission is left to us.
