soldier charity + Catholic teacher + A River Runs Through It

Lenten Mass @ St John Vianney College Seminary, Miami, FLMASS – (Fr Alvarez) — today is the feast day of St Jerome Emiliani.  He was a soldier who left the military life to pursue great acts of charity, especially in caring for the sick in hospitals, the poor and children in orphanages.  — his life resonates with me, especially with my past interest in the military (in which health concerns removed)

Immaculate Conception School observationFIELD TRIP — for our Ministerial Practicum class, in the afternoon, we went to a local Catholic school to observe the teaching styles and techniques in order to prepare our own lesson plans.  I was in a 7th grade English class at Immaculate Conception Catholic School and, embarassingly, couldn’t answer some of the questions my self.  — when do you use who or whom?

A River Runs Through It (film)MOVIE NIGHT — after dinner, the Humanities Department sponsored a movie night featuring A River Runs Through It with great discussion afterwards. — I didn’t get that deep into the movie, but after discussion, I have a greater appreciation for its subtle lessons and observation on life’s journey.
