Seminarian Casual, the blog by students of St. Charles Borromeo Seminary, presents a new series of podcasts each Wednesday where they talk with a guest about everything from the grassroots of their faith to the passions that drive their creativity and enterprises; in short, the things that make them who they are.
Below, SemCasual speaks with Archbishop Charles Chaput, who examines the Catholic priesthood in the 21st century through the same lens used in his recent book, “Strangers in a Strange Land.” He discusses the priesthood with consideration of how it has changed since his own ordination as well as what virtues are considered valuable in a candidate for the priesthood, and whether or not these have changed with time as well.
Help us keep you informed -- CatholicPhilly.com can't do it without youDuring CatholicPhilly.com's fall donation campaign, you have a way to help us deliver the kind of news you need to know about the Catholic Church, especially in the Philadelphia region, and the world in which we live. Every household's costs keep rising, and we're no different. We make sure your dollars in any amount go a long way toward continuing our mission to inform, form in the Catholic faith and inspire the thousands of readers who visit every month. Here is how you can help:
- A $100 gift allows us to present award-winning photos of Catholic life in our neighborhoods.
- A $50 gift enables us to cover a news event in a local parish, school or Catholic institution.
- A $20 gift lets us obtain solid faith formation resources that can deepen your spirituality and knowledge of the faith.
- A small, automated monthly donation means you can support us continually and easily.
Please join in the church's vital mission of communications by offering a gift in whatever amount that you can -- a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more, or a monthly donation. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
