SUMMER 2014 DAY 25 AT IPF
Who is at IPF today:
• 169 seminarians in the 10-week Summer Program of Spiritual Formation
• 12 priests in the Seminar for Seminary Spiritual Directors
What are they doing today?
Today the seminarians continue two new classes. In the morning class, focused on celibacy and sexuality, the men will learn more about the importance of relating to the Lord temptations as soon as they are aware of them. In the afternoon class, focused on the spirituality of diocesan priesthood, the men will learn more about their identity as spiritual physicians.
Today the priests in the Seminar for Seminary Spiritual Directors will grow in their ability to focus on the "heart" of spiritual direction: the actual spiritual experience within the directee.

IF YOU WERE THIS SUMMER TODAY YOU WOULD PRAY WITH ...
Psalm 119 and Psalm 139:1-16 ... ask the Lord to show you "all your ways" with which He "is familiar" (Psalm 139), especially in those moments when you find yourself tempted. How do you typically respond? When do you attempt to resist temptation? Immediately? or after some time when it's more difficult?
