Day #278: Optatam Totius 5-7

Today we continue our reading from the Decree on Priestly Training by finishing up Chapter III on major seminaries.

Article 5 highlights the importance of well-formed teachers and administrators within seminaries.

In article 6, the document speaks of the need to evaluate potential candidates to the priesthood and to use “due firmness” in selecting only those who are fit for the job — even if there is a shortage of priests.

Article 7 addresses those situations where it may be more expedient for seminaries to be regional or national rather than merely diocesan.
