Day #288: Optatam Totius 19

In today’s reading from the Decree on Priestly Training, we begin Chapter VI on “The Promotion of Strictly Pastoral Training.”

Article 19 speaks to preparing seminarians in the “art of directing souls.”  It’s not enough for priests to know the faith, they need to be prepared to help those they will minister to.
