Spiritual Moms - Week 9

July 22 - July 28, Week 9


Week 9 Courses: "The Mystery of the Liturgy:  Receiving in Celebration and in Life" class concludes

Week 9 - Prayer Intention: To be able to have a clear sense of what the Lord is asking our seminarian sons as they return home

On this final week, we pray for our spiritual sons to meditate and listen to the word of God as their daily bread, to remain always His true friend learning to love Him as the intimate treasure of their hearts, and boldly respond to His call with joy so their lives can truly flourish. 

"When we are linked by the power of prayer, we hold each other's hand as we walk side by side along a slippery path; and thus by the generous disposition of charity, it happens that the harder each one leans on the other, the more firmly we are riveted together in brotherly love."

- St. Gregory the Great  


Thank you, thank you for your faithful, daily prayers supporting IPF summer seminarians as they discern their holy vocation to the priesthood!

The Institute for Priestly Formation Mission Statement

The Institute for Priestly Formation was founded to assist bishops in the spiritual formation of diocesan seminarians and priests in the Roman Catholic Church.  The Institute responds to the need to foster spiritual formation as the integrating and governing principle of all aspects of priestly formation.  Inspired by the biblical-evangelical spirituality of St. Ignatius Loyola, this spiritual formation has as its goal the cultivation of a deep interior communion with Christ; from such communion the priest shares in Christ's own pastoral charity.  In carrying out its mission, the Institute directly serves diocesan seminarians and priests as well as those who are responsible for diocesan priestly formation.
