Day #287: Optatam Totius 17-18

In today’s reading from the Decree on Priestly Training, we conclude Chapter V on the academic content of seminary studies.

Article 17 speaks to a renewal of teaching methods so as not to turn seminary studies into a merely academic exercise, but rather to focus on formation.

Article 18 finishes things off by acknowledging the benefit of having certain priests who are so disposed to complete even further education so that tehir expertise may be used in service of the Church.
