Song about celibacy and priesthood

September 20, 2014 1 comment

Here is a song about celibacy and priesthood, performed by a brother seminarian currently at St. Vincent de Paul Regional Seminary.

A great performance by Michael Hartley, challenged by his summer at the Institute for Priestly Formation (IPF).

Meaningful Christmas!

feeling & healing @ IPF

I’m still here at IPF (Institute for Priestly Formation) in Omaha, Nebraska feeling & healing in prayer through all the experiences each day.

Sorry I haven’t posted … I’m trying to get the most of all that’s available … not to miss any opportunities to grow in graces as the Lord reveal more of my identity each day … discerning His plans for me.

I was randomly (not to say God doesn’t have a hand in it) listening to this song (Linkin Park’s “Somewhere I Belong”) and felt the need to post it.  I think it shows the journey, with its highs and hows (consolation & desolation), that most of us here (and anywhere) are experiencing each day as we come to know the Lord deeper and more intimately each day.

— God bless & be holy!

I also found this piano version someone posted:

Pjanoo + SJVCS music video

I found this song a couple weeks ago and every time I listen to it, I picture a music video of seminary life here at St John Vianney College Seminary.  It’s like a flying video camera visiting dormlife, meals, Mass, communal prayer, sports, fellowship, studies, staff, manual labor, social trips and the beautiful grounds.  It changes each time I listen, but the only thing that doesn’t change is the elevation of the Blessed Sacrament in a monstrance by Fr Michael (rector) during our Wednesday Holy Hours … that happened at the 4 minute mark in the song.  I just had to post it … it keeps me focused! 

This is “Pjanoo” (Original Mix) by Eric Prydz.  Enjoy and be holy!

bird + esse + happy place + Ave Maria

During Mass this morning, a bird flew in the Chapel and then right into a window.  He walked it off.  — we all prayed for him

AQUINAS + MEDIEVAL PHILOSOPHY class – (Fr Vallee) — we reviewed the hierarchy of “ESSE” … God (pure act) … angels (pure intuition) … human beings (discursive reasoning, dielectic) … sentient beings (animals) … animate (plants) … inanimate (rocks).  Also mentioned the importance of Ben’s “happy place.”

Somehow, we got talking about Barbara Streisand … her Christmas album … and her version of Ave Maria.  — I can’t believe I actually found this on YouTube … dedicated to Fr Vallee … it’s not so bad?

Divine Mercy Sunday

Divine MercyMASS – (Fr Rios) — homeless couselor … as seminarians, we shouldn’t get too “sophisticated” in our spiritual lives (by forgetting traditions & devotions) … Sacred Heart of Jesus … honesty in spiritual direction helps you and the Church.

Today is Divine Mercy Sunday.  I found some great YouTube videos that trump anything I could write about Divine Mercy & Sr Faustina (POLISH nun).

Below are some YouTube links with the prayer of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy with lot so pictures to reflect on.  Same prayer, but different compilations.  Lots more available … these are my favorites.
