Two young men, with prominent blogs, accepted as Seminarians

With great joy I post that two young men from the Catholic blogosphere have been accepted as seminarians for their respective Diocese. We should all say a prayer of thanksgiving for Edward and Matthew's "yes" to God's call. May Almighty God bless them abundantly, Our Lady keep them, and St. Michael protect them!
I would ask everyone reading this to remember to pray daily for our seminarians - they need it, particularly in the culture we live in today. Their generous and faith filled response is absolutely counter culutural and may prove challenging at times.

As suggested by Fr. Finnigan and Mulier Fortis, how about stopping their blogs and congratulating them...

Thank you for this great blog and post. The image is of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) at an ordination.

I just came upon your blog and am so excited to see something like this on the web.

My brother will be ordained a Roman Catholic priest for the Diocese of Savannah on June 23rd. He was ordained a deacon this October in Rome, Italy where he attends the Angelicum.

It is so encouraging to see young men out there taking the leap of faith!

Vocations has been and will forever be in my prayers.
