Navy SEALs retreat

St John Vianney College SeminaryToday’s silent retreat was led by Fr Peter, a Dominican priest from the New England area.  Using the analogy that seminary training is like Navy SEAL training, we had 5 sessions, each highlighting essential aspects of the priesthood.

Navy SEAL training1.  Holy Eucharist is the center of our lives.

2.  Virtues of “generosity & self-sacrifice” are essential for true “fatherhood.”

3.  Virtue of “truthfulness” must be lived and preached.

4.  “The sanctity & dignity of human life” must be preached, especially now.

5.  Our prayer life should include (1) the Blessed Sacrament and (2) a devotion to Mary.
