Mission to 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.
