Vuestra merced

SPANISH 2 – (Dr Jimenez) — reviewed direct & indirect & reflexive pronouns as well as some tricky stem-changing verb conjugations.  Cool fact: “Ustedes” actually comes from “Vuestra merced” = “Your mercy” which is very formal, old and not used today.  — I’ll try to remember to use that when I get stuck answering a question in class.

RECTOR’s CONFERENCE – (Fr Michael) — tonight was part 2 of 3 on a series called, “Reason, Formation & Relationship with Christ.”  (I’ll post some exerpts separate)  Afterwards, the new men met in small groups for dicussions.
