I had a wonderful time at the Catholic Life Conference in Radnor, PA. I gave my "Life and Legends of Paul" talk twice this afternoon. I was assigned to the school chapel (Archbishop John Carroll High), and the screen they provided was so tiny, I ended up projecting the images onto the brick wall. Only a few details were lost. (Sorry about that, Caravaggio.) My talk was inspired by reading Sr. Armanda's Master's thesis. She studied about eight or so images of Paul to treat of the theology reflected in the art. I am happy to say that her work is heading for the presses with a tentative release date of Jan. 25. You'll see it here as soon as it's available. I highly recommend it.
Meanwhile, here in Philadelphia, we'll be making our November retreat day tomorrow. Usually it's on the first Sunday of the month, but last week we were all involved with the Cooperators' Conference. Sr. Mary Lea's talk for the Cooperators makes a nice retreat reflection, so I offer it here: you can make your own Pauline day of recollection!
