Seminarians of Ukrain

What could possibly be so inviting about priesthood that Ukrainian seminaries are turning down candidates?

Find out at Da Mihi Animas.

Please continue to pray for an increase in vocations to the church, especially in places where God has been placed last. Nearly forgotten or ignored, God, however, continues to love us with passion -- just as he always had.

Here's A Catholic Mom in Hawai'i's blogpost on the subject.

How's my Speech?

How's my speech? What words comprise my daily vocabulary? Are they edifying? Do they built or take away the life of God in others? Is my speech glorifying to God?

Thanks to Msgr. Charles Pope for a thorough write-up that serves as a paradigmatic structure, a guide, that helps us assess the context of our speech to shape it in conformity with the speech expected of a Christian.
