Phone FA 9-3673 SEMINARY (Continued from Page i1) morning for the repose of the soul of the seminary founder, Bishop John B. Morris. Monsignor O'Connell's ser- mon dealt primarily with what goes into the making of a priest. "The priest of today," he asserted "must be informed as well as articulate and con- cerned . . . Every candidate must be subjected to intellec- tual discipline so that he may obtain his full scholastic poten- tial... Spiritual Formation "Yet a seminary would lose its essential orientation if its program were directed primar- ily towa?d scholastic excel- lence," the rector said. "While an atmosphere of scholarly re- search and critical scrutiny is most necessary in order that one might acquire theological learning, it is not enough." A seminary, the Monsignor de- clared, must also be "an insti- tution of spiritual formation." "... Solid piety . . . must at all times distinguish the man of God," he continued ... "Our priests are conscious that they are men of rigid self-discipline, able to live in the world with- out becoming a man of the world -- tiffs has been the im- mediate purpose of the semi- nary rule, which has remained unchanged in its essential fea- tures from the beginning until the present day." Monsignor O'Connell took note of "the unique character" of St. John's Seminary, declar- ing it perhaps was traceable to "its determination and success- ful effort in developing in the undergraduate, attitudes of self-reliance which will permit him after ordination to assume a pastorate of souls without benefit of the long training normally given under the direc- ,lion of'an older priest." Alumni Dispersed The rector noted that more than 400 priest-alumni have had an impact in mission fields from Vermont to San Diego, from Wisconsin to New Orleans and from Puerto Rico to Peru. He paid tribute to Bishop Mor- ris, who "is accorded the first place among the human instru- ments that Almighty God di- rected with His overwhelming grace." He recalled the contri- butions of the seminary's first rector, Monsignor Aretz; its subsequent administrator, Mon- signor Peoples, and the second rector, Monsignor Gaffney, and he asserted "their missionary zeal pervades our entire effort." Monsignor O'Connell looked back over recent years and re- viewed expansi(ms of the semi- nary's facilities. "Since 1944," he said, "we have been strug- gling to expand existing facili- ties and bring our faculty com- petence in strict conformity with the Apostolic Constitution, Deus Scientiarum Dominus." First, he recalled, the Cardinal- Archbishop of Boston -- Rich- ard Cardinal Cushing  per- mitted two of his priests to join St. John's faculty so that regu- lar members of the faculty might have the opportunity to develop a greater competence in their fields of study. Well Trained As a result of this and sub- sequent efforts, the seminary faculty now includes men who have studied in Madrid, Lou- vain, Washington and Rome, as well as many famous American Catholic institutions and local schools at Little Rock and the State University, the Monsignor noted. The rector paid tribute to the seminary's patrons, "but preem- inent among them," he said, is the Auxiliary Archbishop of Chicago, the President of the Catholic Church Extension So- ciety." He told how Archbishop William D. O'Brien's efforts made possible a $50,000 grant toward construction of the seminary's 10-year-old chapel, Miss Diane Haynie Mount Grad Wins State Essay Contest Little Rock -- Miss Diane Haynie, a graduate of Mount St. Mary's Academy, won first place in a state-wide essay con- test conducted by Arkansas' United Daughters of the Con- federacy.
