The Long-Awaited Snap.

So perhaps "snap" and "break" aren't close enough of synonyms that I should use "snap." Well, the fact remains that Spring Break has begun for the University of Saint Thomas, and therefore SPS. The majority of men have already all-too-happily absented themselves from the house. It has been a very fast half-semester, but in some way, that darned existential angst imposes itself and if a man were honest with you when you asked, he'd tell you he felt "stressed."

Thankfully, though, the break is upon us, the load is already lifted or lifting, and we are entering upon Holy Week and the greatest three days of the Church's year.

With the time for a breather, it is perhaps time to catch up and inform you, our readers, of one major happening at the seminary. About a month ago, now, we seminarians had to rearrange our schedule and attend Mass early in the morning at 7:00 AM, rather than our usual 11:35 AM slot (which, by the way, was liked by a number of us). This was to facilitate the interviews of four applicants for our Systematics Department. A while back, we had one facult member (who was a religious) be reassigned and his position had never been filled.

Much to our surprise, a week ago today an announcement was posted on our bulletin board announcing two new appointments to the SPSSOD faculty. I post that announcement for your enjoyment.

Fantastic, but where did Washburn do his Phd? I'd like to see CV's for the men.

Washburn's PhD is from the Catholic University of America; his dissertation is entitled, St. Roberto Cardinal Bellarmino’s Defense of Catholic Christology against the Lutheran Doctrine of Ubiquity.. His faculty page at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary - where he currently teaches - can be found here: Christian Washburn.
