Just to keep the post up to date - I just had my third day of class and things are going well. My studies this semester are concentrating on two areas of the code: Marriage Law and Procedural Law. Two huge areas to cover. But I had the great priveledge of working at our Inter-diocesan Marriage Tribunal this past year and summer which gave me a great head start on the subject matter. Hopefully I can build on this as I begin an in depth study of these areas.
Here are some nice pictures of my 'text book'
You can see its a little worn from my previous year of study
and already full of underlines and notes - not the last, however!

The title of the blog, "Praedica Verbum" comes from the Sacred Scriptures where in 2 Tim 4:2 you find written - "praedica verbum, insta oppurtune, importune, argue, increpa, obsecra in omni longanimitate et doctrina." I'll let you try your hand at translating the mother tongue of the Latin Church or, better yet, open the scriptures in order to translate.
