A Diocese Without a Seminary is Dead




A diocese without a seminary is dead, warns Bishop Fernandez


MADRID, Spain, July 22, 2009--Bishop Demetrio Fernandez of Tarazona, Spain recalled this week the importance of the seminary for the formation of new priests, since only they “can guarantee the survival of the Catholic Church among us.”
“The Church cannot live without priests. For this reason, as I have repeated many times, a diocese without a seminary is a dead diocese. We must continuously pray to the Lord of the harvest that he will send workers to the harvest,” the bishop said in a recent letter about the upcoming ordination of a priest and two deacons.
The bishop said the prayer of the people of Tarazona that priests will never be lacking “is an expression of a need in the Church” and that it is false to say that people do not care about the things of God. “I can testify that everywhere the thirst for God is growing. And the priest exists to satiate that thirst,” he said.
For this reason, he said, “ordaining a new priest is one of the greatest satisfactions for a bishop” and of joy for the Church.
“When we receive the gift of a new priest in the times in which we live, the joy is immense. And we must give thanks to God, because each priest is a gift of his heart,” the bishop said.
Bishop Fernandez said the Year for Priests is an occasion “to thank God for the gift of his priests for the Church, a year to pray for priests and for new vocations to the ordained ministry. If priests aspire to sanctity, the entire diocese will follow suit.” (CNA)

oo nga... hindi talaga dapat isara ang seminaryo... kasi nga, "the seminary is the hear of every diocese" kaya nga kapag tinaggal mo ang seminaryo, tinatanggalan mo ng buhay ang isang diyosesis... Very Happy

i think di lang natatapos sa "di pagsasara" ng mga seminaryo yun. there must also be an active campaign to seed vocations. ano silbi ng mga seminaryong walang seminarista?

yun na nga ang goal ko sana eh, to promote the seminary online. at the same time a virtual meeting place for us.

i was suggesting to one of our friends inside that we can build a website for the seminary, i just need some info/updates. kawawa naman kasi ang alma mater natin, wala man lang cyber presence.

thanks father! salute i've also spoken with mr. Domeng dela Cruz via our yahoo groups, he's very willing to create a website for the minor seminary. he's just asking for a go signal from the formators on this project.
