Perpetual Profession

I cannot start my first 'Rome' newsletter without first giving thanks to God for all the graces I have received in the past three years of my internship, especially my perpetual profession of vows last month. I owe so much to all those who by theirs presence and prayers have supported me in my vocation. Thank you!

United With Brothers

      Having arrived to Rome I have received many graces. One that stands out is being together with 300 brother Legionaries all eager to form themselves as priests. Many brothers I am meeting for the first time, while others were my companions in the seminary back in the United States, Ireland or Spain.
     Whenever a Legionary begins his formation, he always has a mentor for the first months. Pictured here is my first mentor, Br. Benjamin Errington who was with me when I started seminary in Ireland. It has been 7 years since I have seen Br. Benjamin and it is great to be back with him and so many others!

Coming to Rome...

Let me know if you or anyone you know is planning a trip to Rome, I would love to assist you and your experience to the best of my ability.

New Bishops Course

From September 9-18th, our Legionary of Christ seminary of Rome hosted the congress of the newly named Bishops of the whole Catholic Church. There were 120 of them present! We truly experienced the universality of the Church, there were Bishops from: Ukraine, Paraguay, Hungary, Syria, Lebanon and even countries I had never heard of before, not to mention many Bishops from North and South America. On Sunday the 15th we had mass in St. Peter's Basilica together with all of the Bishops.

Life in the Seminary

In this part of my newsletter I would like to always add a tidbit of how life is in the home of a seminary and in particular of the family of the Legion and Regnum Christi. 

One custom we have, is to always make a visit to Mary after night prayers before we go to bed. I love going to a grotto that is behind the seminary and has a beautiful statue of our Lady. There, all of us as future priests place the joys and frustrations of our day in our heavenly Mothers's hands and wish her good night as any good son would.
