Full of Fun

This week we have been learning about the actions of the Holy Spirit. James Parker has given wonderful testimony on same-sex attraction and the God-given purpose of human sexuality. This is a very important topic that we look forward to being able to share with our confused world. Fr Mike Gwinnell offered Mass for the healing of our deceased family members, and Fr Angelus Houle and Camillo (of the Shalom Community) have spoken about the gifts of the Holy Spirit in our lives, and how we can be more open to allowing His love into our hearts. We enjoyed dinner at Allen Hall seminary (where many past SPES students lived), meeting the brave men studying to serve us as priests. We will certainly keep them in our prayers.

This week, we will enjoy lectures on the Sacraments; and the final profession of Sister Camilla COLW, praying for her as she dedicates her whole life to the Lord’s service. We also benefitted from a workshop on Gregorian Chant, which is “specially suited to the Roman liturgy: therefore, other things being equal, it should be given pride of place in liturgical services” (Sacrosanctum Concilium, Vatican II). We look forward to enriching our prayers in this way.
