Mission to Seminarians

seminarians

In St. Paul’s second letter to Timothy, he says in chapter 4, verse 13

“When you come bring the cloak which I left at Troas with Carpus, and the books, especially the parchments.”

St. Paul, knew the value of having good books.  Each year we visit Seminarians all over Canada to give them books written by Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

Over the course of a seminarian’s training, we try to put the following books into their hands:

   The Priest is Not His Own

   Those Mysterious Priests

   Life of Christ

   The Worlds First Love

   Treasures of Clay

   Calvary and the Mass

   Victory over Vice

   The Armor of God

   Three to Get Married

   Peace of Soul

   The Way to Happiness

We feel that these books will help these seminarians to develop a love for Christ, a love for Our Lady and the tools to help council the souls they will encounter.

Along with the books, we also give the seminarians over 350 audio files on MP3 format of talks given by Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen.  They can listen to over 150 hours of reflections on various topics.  They actually will have five years worth of homilies they could use when they become priests.

Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen spent the last 10 years of his life given retreats to Priests, Religious and Seminarians.  He felt that the best way to restore the Catholic Church to its glory was to fortify the priesthood and religious life.  We hope to continue this work he began.
