The Pilgrims Have Returned
March 16, 2022
The Mundelein seminarians of third theology have returned back to Chicago safe and sound! It was an incredible journey, and though it was long and tiring, it was filled with unforgettable experiences, true fraternity, and a great desire to share what we have encountered in the Holy Land. We will have some time to recover, and then we’ll be back to the regular seminary schedule. However, there will be plenty of time to reflect on and share the numerous graces we’ve been blessed with in our nine-week stay in the Holy Land. We look forward to unpacking these with you and each other. As we all continue to prepare for the holiest days of our Church year, let us all pray that we may stay close to the Lord Jesus Christ so we can all celebrate the victory of his cross and Resurrection.
Check out the final podcast episode in the player above featuring Archdiocese of Chicago seminarians Kevin Gregus, Dan Korenchan and Michael Mehringer.
Thank you for the prayers and please continue to pray for us as we journey toward ordination.
When the LORD brought back the exiles of Sion,
we thought we were dreaming.
Then was our mouth filled with laughter;
on our tongues, songs of joy.
Then the nations themselves said, “What great deeds
the LORD worked for them!”
What great deeds the LORD worked for us!
Indeed, we were glad.
Bring back our exiles, O LORD,
as streams in the south.
Those who are sowing in tears
will sing when they reap.
They go out, they go out, full of tears,
bearing seed for the sowing;
they come back, they come back with a song,
bearing their sheaves.
