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 […]

Holy Week Experience

Holy Week Experience

Toward the end of my second year of Philosophy I have had wonderful experiences in which I have learned a great deal, and one of them has been to live and serve during Holy Week. Here at Conception Seminary we had a delightful three day silent retreat as we approached the Easter Vigil. During this […]

The Lord is my shepherd

The Lord is my shepherd

In my seminary (Conception Seminary College, in Conception, Missouri), we have a one-day retreat every month. This month, our retreat master was Fr. Scott Boeckman, from the Diocese of Oklahoma City. The theme of the retreat was psalm 23, which portrays God as a shepherd and the psalmist (the author of the psalm) as a […]

My new step in formation

My new step in formation

New air I am breathing; a new environment and definitely new challenges. My first semester here in Conception Seminary College has been great so far. One thing to highlight would be the brotherhood that there is here in the seminary. It is so easy to walk into each other’s rooms and get help or just hang […]

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 […]

Un Papa como Nosotros

Un Papa como Nosotros

Creo que será una gran experiencia que podré contar a mis feligreses en el futuro. Pero antes de que llegue aquel momento, les narro a ustedes, queridos hermanos, esta […]

Hoy concluyó el retiro que organiza mi seminario, Conception Seminary College, para iniciar la Cuaresma en un espíritu de oración. Este retiro comenzó el Miércoles de Ceniza, y quisiera compartirles lo mucho que me ayudó en mi vida espiritual. Joseph Charron, obispo retirado de la diócesis de Des Moines, fue quien impartió las pláticas del […]

¡Una Nueva Experiencia!

¡Una Nueva Experiencia!

El seminario esta lleno de magníficos momentos que marcan grandes recuerdos en la vida de los seminaristas. Estos momentos han sido de gran experiencia en mi vida y a veces es muy difícil contar esta experiencia. Para mi eso es un gran reto, pero le pido a Dios que me ilumine para poder trasmitir lo […]

Back after the first semester

Back after the first semester

Last Sunday, my fellow seminarians and I arrived to Conception, Missouri for another academic semester, after being at home for about three weeks. I had a great time in El Paso. I visited my parents, my grandparents, brother seminarians, some priests, and some friends. I also went to Chihuahua for a week, and I saw […]
