Welcome to the LC Blog!
We are Legion of Christ seminarians from all around the world… and have many different opinions. We’ll be blogging about sports, politics, the arts, philosophy and more. But the one thing that unites us is our love for Christ. We want to make him the center of our lives, day by day to become a little more like him. And since we love Christ, we want to help others to experience him, to meet him. Because once you meet Christ as he truly is, you can’t help but love him.
So that’s why we are on the internet: to use modern means to reach out and give others Christ, to give hope. We want to show the joy and beauty of our faith because that is what converts people.
With Pope Francis, we are convinced that:
it is not the same thing to have known Jesus as not to have known him, not the same thing to walk with him as to walk blindly, not the same thing to hear his word as not to know it, and not the same thing to contemplate him, to worship him, to find our peace in him, as not to. It is not the same thing to try to build the world with his Gospel as to try to do so by our own lights. We know well that with Jesus life becomes richer and that with him it is easier to find meaning in everything. This is why we evangelize. (Evangelii Gaudium, 266)
By the way, we as individual authors take responsibility for any errors in content. This blog is not institutional and none of the articles reflect the Legion of Christ’s official position.
So we’re off! We want to share with you our reflections and some of the graces God has granted us in prayer as we approach the priesthood. Will you come with us on the journey?
