Receive the gifts of the Spirit

August 29, 2018

The new school year opened at Mount Angel Seminary on August 27, as seminarians, faculty, staff, and the monks of Mount Angel Abbey gathered in Damian Center to celebrate the Mass of the Holy Spirit. In his homily, Abbot Jeremy reminded everyone that the beginning of a new school year is the beginning of “a big project.” Seminary is about learning to live together in love. It’s about preparing to be in service to God’s people. At times, the task ahead may seem “beyond our strength.” But it is possible because: “Immense is God’s mercy; lavish are his graces.”
