legendary “Tree of Vocational End” @ SJVCS

Here at St John Vianney College Seminary (Miami, FL), there is a beautiful and gigantic tree outside the Library building with a legend attached.  Apparently any seminarian that has tried to climb the tree has left the seminary [and not become a priest].  I’m not one for superstitions, but knowing that now may make the tree a temptation during a time of spiritual “desolation” or just on one of those “stressful” seminary days that forces the question, “Why am I here again?”  I hope I don’t do something that extreme [and immature] to actually consider an avenue of “vocational suicide” in a moment of weakness.  Fortunately for me, I have a long walk to that “tree” from the Pre-Theology houses … and I know my fellow brothers are there to keep me from “myself” in those moments.  — Thank God today is a “good” day  : )   lol
