Mass Offered Today for Seminarians

Br. Alexander Chung MIC
A Mass was offered today for all seminarians that they will grow in holiness and lead us all in love.  Every month we have a Mass offered for this intention.  As our seminarians will be the future shepherds and our children are the future flock it seemed a beautiful way for the children to help. 
We would like to begin featuring a different seminarian each month.  Inviting them to share something of themselves.  A beautiful sharing of faith and love of Our Lord.

We would like to begin with Br. Alexander Chung MIC.  He is in the second year of Theology  with the Marians of the Immaculate Conception and joined in July 2011.  He is originally from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
We asked Br. Alex to share a few favorite quotes and thoughts with us.  As today is the Feast of Mary Mother of God, he chose a favorite quote about our Blessed Mother.

"Never be afraid of loving the Blessed Virgin too much.  You can never love her more than  Jesus did." - Saint Maximilian Kolbe.

Br. Alexander Chung also shares, "Here is a quote that pertains to the Holy Souls in Purgatory. I have a strong devotion to them. I am sure Mama Mary gave me this. 'Of all prayers, the most meritorious, the most acceptable to God are prayers for the dead, because they imply all the works of charity, both corporal and spiritual.'" Saint Thomas Aquinas

He also wanted to thank the children who are part of the Children's Rosary:
"I am very grateful and appreciate of the prayers of the children, since not only is the Rosary a powerful prayer and Jesus and Mary love innocence (The Father loves his little humble ones, especially children with a special love).  If Jesus listens to one child's prayer- imagine having many upon many little ones offering prayers to Him.  This thought helps me to keep at it and although many falls still happen - I think of the many darts from the evil one that have been completely stopped. So I love this little apostolate of Mary's kids praying up a storm - they learn to pray, love Jesus and Mary and help us to strive to seek God's Will - a win/win.
I pray that God will use them to bring unity to families, shame the proud and bring about many conversions and strengthen the already converted." (Br. Alexander Chung MIC)
