New Classes

Here are the classes I'm taking this semester.

Spanish - I still have no idea what's going on in this class.

Latin - Self explanatory.

Field education seminar - This semester I will be assisting a ministry to the homeless in Venice Beach. Should be interesting. I also have an hour class to learn the art of theological reflection.

Pastoral Psychology - The basics of counseling... what we can do as priests, what we can't do as priests... when to make referrals, etc.

Homiletics - practicing the art of preaching.

Johannine Lit. - The Gospel of John, The book of revelation, the Johannine epistles. Very excited (John is my favorite Gospel).

Ecclesiology - The study of the Church (its mission and structure, etc.).

Canon Law - The law of the Church. You might even define it as Ecclesiology in action.

Healthcare and Catholic Morality - probably going to turn out to be my favorite class.

Should be very busy, especially since my field education takes up a whole day. Oh well...

Here is a video I took this last weekend at the Walk for Life West Coast in San Francisco. I obviously attended.

All I know is that if I say "Que" enough times it causes the professor to speak english.
