Happy Birthday to our son Joseph today who has reached the age of 1. It is really incredible to watch a child grow and also watch them discover the wonders of the world and to rediscover it with him. He is truly a blessing for both his mother and me. He teaches us the grace of contemplating the world around us and also reminds us that we need to care for each other.

A Benedictine priest, a fellow conservative, who attended one of the same liberal seminaries that I did at about the same time wrote to tell me that he agrees with my assessment of the situation in regard to the current crisis. His letter also reminded me that it is really necessary to pray for priests. Please take a moment to do just that.

We hope to visit the St. Rita Shrine in Philadelphia tomorrow. I wrote about it my book, Mention Your Request Here: The Church’s Most Powerful Novenas. I’ll remember the intentions of the readers of this blog while there.

Amy spoke this morning at NCEA and had a good crowd present for her talk. Afterward she signed books at the OSV booth. I walked the floors checking out the competition and tried to keep Joseph entertained at the same time, which wasn’t easy with numerous people shoving their faces into his asking him questions like he was before the Inquisition.



Mary-Louise Kurey,
a former Miss WIsconsin who speaks at schools across the country promoting chastity was also there. I’m responsible for Mary-Louise writing a book that Our Sunday Visitor published. She is a great speaker and had a great crowd also. If you have anything to do with booking speakers for youth get in touch with her.
