basketball + clean shoes

090204_nike-shoes-cleaning-01SPORTS NIGHT — since Sports Night was delayed (HS practice) until 9:30pm, not enough guys for volleyball.  The basketball players needed 1 more to make even teams, so I “played” (there must be a better word for what I did). 

Beforehand, I finally cleaned those dirty white shoes.

081118_sjvcs-basketball-1SPORTS NIGHT — another awesome Tuesday with volleyball & basketball.  I get so excited about volleyball, that I forget to take any pictures.  Maybe next time.

BLOG STATUS — this is actually my first post this month.  In some extra personal effort to get more engaged in seminary life by staying diligent to my “goals,” especially a Holy Hour everyday, I haven’t had much time to even download my pictures from my cellphone.  Yesterday, with the extension of 2 paper due dates, it gave me some breathing room to get some posts ready (I’ll be backdating them).  — Thank you for all your prayers and support!  God bless & be holy.

Latin choir + volleyball + Fr Rios

SJV ChapelAt MASS, the choir sang some awesome Latin hymns, but couldn’t pull off the English ones.  🙂

Afternoon VOLLEYBALL outside with our new (fragile) net in the grass field was great.  3 fun games.

Dinner announcements were done by Fr Rios (very lively and apparently historical/rare).

surfing + volleyball

surfing priestly formationMASS – (Fr Michael) — analogy of priestly formation like surfing (paddle out against obstacles, waiting & watching, riding the wave)

VOLLEYBALL — only 3 of us showed up for volleyball, so we didn’t set up the new outdoor volleyball net we had.  We bumped the ball around vowing to battle another day.

MOVIE — saw The Bucket List

Lauds + angel icons + Daily Examen

NEW MORNING SCHEDULE — starting today, we’re doing Morning Prayer (Lauds) together (instead of “on our own“) before Mass everyday.  It’s a revision to our regular schedule, but it shouldn’t affect it too much.  — my breakfast time is critical.

MODERN PHILOSOPHY – (Fr Santos) — today we start David Hume.  He’s supposed to be easier and more relevant to us.  — we’ll see about that.

ANCIENT PHILOSOPHY – (Fr Santos) — today we start Aristotle.  According to Fr Vallee, reading Aristotle is “like chewing sandpaper.”  — whatever that means?

ARTS & IDEAS – (Fr Vallee) — we reviewed some slides of various angel icons.  I didn’t realize the significance of each color.

MINISTERIAL METHODS – (Fr Michael) — the next part of our semester will focus more on person reflection of our ministry.  Today we learned how to do a “Daily Examen” of St Ignatius of Loyola.  For next week, we have an assignment to write a 3-5 page reflection paper on any aspect of the Church documents we’ve studied so far regarding the laity.

PRE-THEOLOGY MEETING — all the Pre-Theology guys met with Fr Michael to discuss status of the new off-campus housing for us 12 guys.  It looks like we’ll be moving in the next couple of weeks.

V-O-L-L-E-Y-B-A-L-L — the greatest way to return to seminary life … an evening of VOLLEYBALL.  — Heroes” will have to wait.


[this is a backdated post]  All I can remember about Monday is evening VOLLEYBALL(–but I’m sure I learned something in today’s 4 classes, too)  — and I missed “Heroes”, but it was worth it … v o l l e y b a l l  🙂

Bishop Estevez – name graces – volleyball fix

September 26, 2007 Leave a comment

MODERN PHILOSOPHY – (Fr Santos) — started John Locke’s “An Essay Concerning Human Understanding.”  Empiricism vs rationalism.

ANCIENT PHILOSOPHY – (Fr Santos) — continued Plato’s Phaedo with “knowledge as recollection” and “the indestructibility of the soul.”

ARTS & IDEAS – (Fr Vallee) — finished the Greek handout for our test on Friday.

WORKLIST — in “Sacristy,” I had bathrooms, so I finished pretty quick with time enough to help mop.  The tapistry of St Lawrence (hurricane damaged) was also being put up, so I took some pictures up close.

HOLY HOUR — with a small delegation of visitors from a Cuban priest and religious conference in Miami, we were blessed to have Bishop Estevez presiding over Benediction & Vespers.  He mentioned some words of wisdom from a formator in seminary that stood out for him.  He said we should NAME the graces we receive throughout the day in order to trace our journey with the Lord.  — that’s a great idea … like “Connect-the-dots” of grace … I should do that, but I probably won’t stick to it

VOLLEYBALL TONIGHT — I finally got my fix tonight from 9-10pm in the gym.  I hope we can have it more regularly (weekly at least).

CONNECT-the-DOTS — (since holy hour🙂  rain … benediction … air conditioning … Bishop’s blessing … good food … table fellowship … quiet study … volleyball … health & safety … refreshing shower … did I mention volleyball?   🙂
