FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND:  "Only God and a few angels know the difference between embrace and smother."  John Shea

QUOTE II:  "Don't hold on to anything so tightly that you can't reach out to your neighbor."  Fr. Ed Estok


Those in the Adam's Ale Post Office apologize that there was no post yesterday.  There was a funeral for a fellow priest, Fr. Jim Flood.

 Lynn sent this in with the note, "You know it's pastor appreciation month.  I thought that you would like this."

From the Diocese of Cleveland Enewsletter:  "There is certainly more activity this year on the campus of the Center for Pastoral Leadership (CPL) located on Euclid Avenue in Wickliffe, Ohio. The CPL is the home for both seminaries of the Diocese of Cleveland. The undergraduate school is Borromeo Seminary and the graduate school of theology is Saint Mary Seminary."  Read more here.

This article sent in by Mary:  "Bishop Tells Apologists: Beauty Must Infuse the New Evangelism"  Read more here.

Here is a three and a half minute film from the Black Friars:

nobody told me that it is "pastor appreciation month" . . . so I don't have to do any pastor appreciating

Thanks be to God for the growth in the seminary. The Holy Spirit is on the move in the Diocese of Cleveland, in no small part due to the efforts of the tireless priests who serve our parishes and give an inspiring example to young men.

Our seminary was even prominently featured in a national news story about the upswing in priestly vocations: After years of decline, Catholics see rise in number of future priests"

Our seminary rector, Fr. Mark Latcovich, attributes much of the growth to "encouraging current seminarians and priests who are 'our best recruiters. If they are happy and witnessing their faith and opening their hearts, that enthusiasm and joy is contagious.'"

Of course part of that credit goes to you, Fr. V, with your vocation exploration dinners and all.
