Wow. So you think time flies. Well, time really flies when you’re in seminary. There has been SO much going on since November, it’s hard to recap, so I’ll try with some pictures!
At the March for Life in D.C. this Jan., there were HUGE numbers of ppl. It was an incredible experience. Too bad media never covers it.
Once we returned to seminary for Spring semester, we immediately began preparations for Abbey Youth Fest, which was a huge success. Over 3,500 teens showed up for St. Ben’s biggest AYF yet. There were great speakers, awesome bands (including L’angelus & Sarah Kroger) & strong spiritual celebrations of the sacraments & liturgy!
The rest of the Spring semester here at seminary has been completely packed full of extraordinary experiences and inspirational occurrences. My spiritual life has made an unbelievable leap in the past few months, and is continuing to grow. Many of your prayers have been answered in different ways. I’ve become very involved in the community, and my studies have been a struggle, but given some extreme insights.
We’re also having lots of fun, including Mardi Gras events, kayaking, zoo outings & turtles!
Left is Mardi Gras Parade with Sabs & Matthew. Right is kayaking w/ Joe & Boucher down the river, which is on the seminary property!
Johnny was very excited to see a tortoise at the Audubon Zoo in NOLA. Boucher caught a soft-shell turtle near the river and I just had to hold it. Reptiles are cool. (and cool blooded.)
