It may seem that I have fallen off the face of the earth--but I haven't. Shortly after our gathering at St. Malo in Estes park, CO I left on a vacation trip to my home in Illinois. I spent almost two weeks with my family and with some of the friars in Chicago. I also stopped by to visit with the new novices on my way home. It was a great time--very relaxing and enjoyable. Perhaps the thing I spent the most time at was watching the Olympics; something I truly enjoy.
So I'm back to work this week and spending a couple of days teaching our new postulants a little bit about moral theology as well as answering emails and letters.
I hope the Lord blessed your summer with some relaxing time as he has mine.
