Future Priests of the Third Millennium

A little insight into the life of seminarians from various dioceses preparing for ministry as Roman Catholic priests, including daily activities, personal interests, special events, the spiritual life, news from the seminary, and almost whatever comes to our minds!

Perhaps a little-known fact: ideally, we fast on Holy Saturday.

Now, obviously, the Church doesn't require it by making it universal law, like she does for Good Friday.

But, our laws and ideals are there to guide us into right living, into the spirit of the mysteries we celebrate.

In the flood of thoughts and feelings after the death of a loved one, perhaps "adrift" is a good description of one's state.

Lost. Confused. Not desiring to do much but understand what has happened.

So too for us.

While we are deprived of our Lord as he sleeps the sleep of death, we wait. We mourn. We fast.

Interesting. It makes sense. Wish I'd known it Saturday. Next year.
