God’s Not Dead

God’s Not Dead

The Lord has Risen, Alleluia! Our God is not dead, He is alive! Christ died for each one of us. This “death” of His is the greatest sign of love. Rejoice my brothers and sisters, Christ loves each one us. Let us turn back to Him and show others what it means to be Christians. […]

Lent/Cuaresma

Lent/Cuaresma

Lent is a time in which many offer up things for God in order to grow in a certain area in their life. What have you offered up? How many times do we complain about school, work, family and/or live in general? Why do we complain? Does someone or something drive us crazy, angry or […]

Talents

Talents

How am I using the gifts God gave me? St. Paul says “Do not neglect the gift you have, which was given to you by prophecy when the council of elders laid their hands on you.” (1 Timothy 4:14) This year I find myself directing the “Mariachi” and Spanish Choir at Conception Seminary College. It […]

Unity

Unity

How good and how pleasant it is, when brothers live in unity. Do you live in unity? It this unity with your family, friends, and/or neighbors? What about the people you don’t like? What about those who you don’t know? God invites us to love/treat one another the way you love/treat yourself. It is easier […]

La Vida En El Seminario

La Vida En El Seminario

Que pronto se pasa el tiempo. Otro semestre en Concepción ya casi se termina. Siempre me pregunto, “¿Aún sigo haciendo lo que Dios quiere?” y mi repuesta siempre viene siendo sí y no. Sí, porque aún estoy feliz en lo que hago y en el lugar donde yo estoy. No, porque yo estoy consciente de […]

A Year

A Year

This year went by so fast. Every time I think about it makes me feel amazed. It feels that I was barely told I was going to Conception yesterday but it has been a year. This entire year has been filled with many blessings. I have been able to grow so much due to all […]

School Year

School Year

This school year is almost over, but it feels like it has been barely three months! Time has gone by so fast. It has been such a great year. I have grown so much since arriving here. Being away in the middle of “nowhere” has really helped out my spirituality. I am able to keep […]

La misericordia de Dios

La misericordia de Dios

Nuestro Señor Jesucristo es un Dios muy compasivo, muy misericordioso y muy amoroso. Muchas veces oímos que nos vamos a ganar el infierno si no paramos de pecar. Eso es muy cierto pero existe algo muy grande, algo que todos podemos obtener y algo que Dios lo dejo para todos nosotros. Eso mis hermanos y […]

Walking into the Unknown

Walking into the Unknown

Where am I? What is this place? Why was I sent here? Is this a punishment? These are all the questions I ask myself when I was sent into Conception Seminary College. When I first arrived at the Seminary I was surprised when I saw it in the “middle of nowhere.” I questioned everything about […]

The Convocation: Such a Great Blessing

The Convocation: Such a Great Blessing

This past week I had the opportunity to experience my first convocation. The experience was such a blessing in many ways. One of the things I truly loved about the convocation was being able to see my fellow seminary brothers that I rarely get to see in a daily basis. The convocation made it possible […]
