The URL of my blog no longer makes any sense. As of Friday September 14, 2007, I am no longer a seminarian. I was dismissed from the Pontifical College Josephinum on Summorum Pontificum day (The Exhaltation of the Holy Cross.) I won't go into much detail about it here.
I will still continue to blog, although I won't have any posts about seminary live (duh!)
I want to thank you all for your prayers and comments since I started this blog, and I would ask that you still pray for me as I continue to discern what God wants for me in my life.

Despite being built approx. 10 years ago, the cathedral still retains a very sacred style of architecture. Boy, I wish we could still build them like this again.
One of the first things you notice when entering the cathedral is the breathtaking mosaics. The dominant one is of Christ on the main dome.
Combined with the cathedral, the food and drinks were awesome as well. I highly recommend a baklava sundae.

I need to get me one of those tents for the next time I go camping!
The costumes there (for the most part) were pretty cool.
Dan and Shawn in the stocks. That'll teach them to argue with me!
After all was said and done, Shawn and I escaped and had a good beer and a smoke.
Then Shawn got a little bit too drunk and decided to join the local militia.
They decided to put him in charge of the artillery. Notice he's drinking on the job.
I offered to help but all I did was philosophise. I'm not even sure why they let me touch the thing.Then Dan got into the act yelling and screaming "when I was your age I used to use one of these things in the north against the injins!"
Well, that was kind of the last straw. When the Captain saw that Shawn was letting civilians mess with the artillery they threatened to put us in the stocks again. We decided to run instead. After dodging cannon fire for about an hour, we finally made it back to the Josh.
Well, that was our trip. After I patch the bullet holes and wash off the gunpowder I'll get to blogging again. Until then, please pray for me.
