The Joy of School

Long-time readers know that one of my favorite books of all-time is The Love of Learning and the Desire for God by Jean LeClerq.

In that vein, a few end of semester projects are taking shape  (and you know how excited I am):

  1. A (simulated) catechetical presentation on Christ as Priest, taking into consideration what Christ's priesthood can tell us about lay and ordained people.
  2. An investigation and synthesis of the PPF (Program for Priestly Formation) and the guidelines published by the CMSM (Conference of Major Superiors of Men) regarding priestly formation.
  3. Something, not yet fully formed, about John Courtney Murray, natural law and the role of Catholics in public policy.
  4. A submitted abstract regarding the models of Catholic participation in American politics (and if it isn't accepted, I think I have an article in there somewhere!)
  5. An exegesis (and Franciscan reading) of the parable of the Rich Young Man in the Synoptic Gospels
  6. Something resembling a series of theses on ministry today.
And if you think this is "work," you don't know me very well.
