God's Pledge Renewal

The Seminary is currently enjoying a few days of quiet after the exciting days of the priestly ordinations and first Masses and the beautiful feast of Christmas but before the commencement of three weeks of retreats – for men, for women, and for the priests of the Australian District. These retreats will continue the flow of graces which has been so abundant over the past two weeks.

The ordination of new priests is like a renewal of God's pledge to continue that work of Redemption which He began on the first Christmas day. Even from the first moments of His earthly life, “power went out from Him” to sanctify all those who came to Him with faith – the shepherds, the magi, and especially those closest to Him, His own Mother and St. Joseph.
