Students are back at Sacred Heart Monastery completing their quarantine before the start of the new semester. Using footage shot prior to the holidays, they put together two new videos for the province YouTube channel. The first is about Fr. Gene’s Help Center, a Milwaukee charity where Fr. Frank Wittouck, SCJ, volunteers. Fr. Frank introduced seminarians to the ministry because it is an example of Dehonian values in action.
“Christ does not give the poor charity alone, but also justice, esteem, and respect,” wrote Fr. Leo John Dehon. Click here to view the video.
The second video features third-year candidate Jacob Smith sharing the stories behind several of his favorite Rosaries. Just as each church can ignite particular feelings and memories, so too can a Rosary, bringing us on a unique path to our goal of welcoming Christ in our hearts.
He includes his first Rosary, one that he received in Rome shortly before his conversion to Catholicism. “It was the first Rosary that I prayed the Rosary with,” he said.
