In Our Sunday Visitor, author Jim Graves has published a thoughtful profile of Rev. Gary B Selin, STD (’89), a graduate of the College who is both a priest and a shepherd of future priests in his capacity as an assistant professor and formation director at the Archdiocese of Denver’s St. John Vianney Theological Seminary. “It can be exhausting,” Fr. Selin says of his demanding work, but the seminary “is a parish of souls that the Lord has given to me, and in that I find my peace and joy.”

The story describes Fr. Selin’s time at the College where, in adoration before the Blessed Sacrament, he first discerned his vocation. “It was there I felt a tug on my heart,” he reflects. “Jesus was inviting me to grow in a deeper relationship with him in the holy Eucharist.”  It also discusses his recently published scholarly work, Priestly Celibacy: Theological Foundations, which proposes a systematic theology of priestly celibacy, ordered around the Eucharist.
