On Aug. 2, Archbishop José H. Gomez welcomed 21 new seminarians to the Archdiocese of Los Angeles as they begin their journey toward the priesthood at St. John’s Seminary and Queen of Angels Center for Priestly Formation.
Archbishop Gomez gave the seminarians his blessing following a special Mass in their honor at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Downtown Los Angeles. After celebrating Mass in the cathedral’s St. Vibiana Chapel, the archbishop hosted a barbeque at the cathedral residence for all 97 seminarians in the archdiocese. The Serra Club sponsored the event.
On Aug. 12, a total of 11 seminarians from St. John’s were ordained to the Sacred Order of Deacon at the cathedral, including nine men from the Los Angeles Archdiocese and two from the Archdiocese of Kiyinda-Mityana in Uganda.
Full story at Angelus.
Wow! Archbishop Gomez is a great blessing for our Archdiocese of Los Angeles.
Excellency, please be certain that each and every seminarian learns the Tradition of the Church, for that is their other anchor, that they learn to properly say the Mass of All Time, and that, of course, they learn Latin, and possibly Greek, per St. John XXIII’s “Veterum Sapientia.”
That they all agree going in that they have not been, and are not, homosexual by inclination and sexual history.
Christ will do the rest.
Archbishop Gomez: Congratulations on this class of seminarians. Please make sure that they receive a true Catholic formation, including a deep study of the Sacred Scriptures and the teachings of the Second Vatican Council. May Jesus, Jospeh and Mary bless their ministry as well as yours.
Since when is cream a liturgical color for vestments?
Cream was just used on the vestments for a Mass at the Immaculate Conception Church in Russia, too. One of the Vatican officials officiated at that Mass. You can google it on line. Some of the vestments had lace and were quite beautiful, and it seems the mass was done in Latin, or mostly so, as I heard the priest say “saecula saeculorum”.
