Letter from the Rector of our MSC Seminary in Lima - Peru 2006
My name is
Father Paulino Rodríguez MSC. Since 2005 I'm responsible for the
formation of the young men who are preparing themselves in the Seminary
"Our Lady of the Sacred Heart" Lima / Peru to serve the Lord and his
Church as Missioneries of the Sacred Heart. Actually we have 15
seminarians in the different moments of formation and study (Philosophy
and Theology). Additionally there are 5 young men preparing themselves
at the Aspirantado in Trujillo (northern Peru) to enter next year our
are happy and show much enthusiasm to live religious life. They
want to follow the call of the Lord in order to continue his work. We
are very happy too because our people need direly priests and religious
for the new evangelisation. We, the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart,
present our invitation to many youngsters, to follow this way of Christ.
It is worth it to live this adventure. Now, as you know, priests and
religious men aren't something that pertains to the past. We ourselves
can give witness that is is wonderful to follow Christi. We live happily
our mission and share our lives with all people.
ask you to pray for aus so that the Sacred Heart may awake in many heart
the desire and the decision to follow him as Missionaries of the Sacred
Heart. Now I would like to direct you attention to another aspect: The
formation and the academic education of the seminarians has its
necessary finantial requirements. Man lives from bread too and needs
many other things. Every seminarian requieres the expenditure of
350.- Dollars a month. During the past many benefactors from Germany
have helped us. But this has diminished very much. In Peru we
organize several activities in order to get help. We present you a very
special organisation "Corazón
Misionero" that is helping us very much. Please contact them.
There are benefectors in Peru too, the seminarians help and their
families -many live in poverty- help with money and victuals.
thank you heartilly if you decide to help us regarding the formation and
academic education of future priests. Please help us, it is worth it.
The Lord will bless you hundertfold and we will remember you forever in
P. Paulino Rodríguez Vásquez MSC
Rector of the Seminary
