In Plain Sight

My Summer Assignment on the Eastern Plains
September 16, 2017  |  By BRANDON ALLEN
COLORADO SPRINGS. Submitting to and falling in love with God’s will was very gradual for me. I’ll never forget the first time I could envision myself as a priest celebrating Mass, giving homilies, and hearing confessions — it was exciting! As I pursued the seminary, I remember asking the Lord, “If it’s your will, open the doors,” and so far, he has. I am about to begin my third seminary year at St. Gregory the Great in Seward, Nebraska studying philosophy, having spent most of the summer at the parishes on the Eastern Plains of Colorado. I served four weeks in Cheyenne Wells and Kit Carson with Father Jason Keas, and four weeks in Burlington and Stratton with Father Carlos Gallardo.

THE BISHOP'S VOICE: Another form of consecrated life   We are well aware of the Second Vatican Council's restoration of the diaconate as a permanent order in the Church. What we might not be nearly as aware of is the same council's restoration of the ancient sacramental of Consecration to a Life of Virginity for Women Living in the World.
