Excerpt from American Ecclesiastical Review, 1900, Vol. 23: A Monthly Publication for the ClergyIn a former number of the Review (November, 1898) I pointed out that the holy Bishop of Geneva did not, at any time during his episcopate, find himself in position to establish a diocesan seminary; but I showed what means he took to remedy this disadvantage. It will be of interest to inquire what would have been in all probability the special features of a seminary founded by him; and it is perhaps even more interesting to discover or conjecture the system of seminary training which he would recommend for the needs of the present day, particularly in English-speaking lands. The answer to these two questions is the subject of the present paper. I intend to speak, not of the mere college, or of what is called the "Little Seminary," but of the "Great Seminary," comprising only such youths whose aptitude and attraction for the priesthood have already become more or less clear both to the candidates themselves and to their superiors; in other words, I have in mind seminarists who are in a short time to become the guides of souls and who are occupied in the highest and most difficult branches of ecclesiastical study. What then would St. Francis de Sales have done with and for such a chosen band? What for their souls? What for their minds? What for their physique?The Devout Life gives us the general system which would be followed by its author in the development of the spiritual and moral character of his future priests, by religious exercises and by the study and practice of the virtues. He could not ask less from them than from persons "in the world."About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
