A Mass was offered on November 1st 2017 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 have been periodically featuring different seminarians at the beginning of each month.
The seminarian we will feature today is Br. Alex Chung M.I.C. The picture above we took at his perpetual vows on August 13th 2016 at the National Shrine of Divine Mercy. Br. Chung has a very strong devotion to the Holy Souls. He shared with me that on the day of his perpetual vows he asked that one million souls be released from purgatory. The day of his vows it was unusually hot in the Church at the Shrine of Divine Mercy. With the heavy vestments the Priests in particular and the Brothers surely had some additional suffering that day. Br. Chung commented, "Many kidded with me that because of my request, the day had to be uncomfortable hot. :) I am sure many were released."
The catechism of the Catholic Church speaks of the help we can offer the Holy Souls, "In full consciousness of this communion of the whole Mystical Body of Jesus Christ, the Church in its pilgrim members, from the very earliest days of the Christian religion, has honored with great respect the memory of the dead; and 'because it is a holy and a wholesome thought to pray for the dead that they may be loosed from their sins' she offers her suffrages for them." (CCC 958)
