We're at the IRL Conference (still needing prayers and lot of them!). Sr Helena has the biggest challenge: giving a talk on Theology of the Body and Vocational Discernment for an audience ages 13-30. While she's doing that, I hope to catch Fr. Robert Barron on St. Paul's pastoral preaching. And then get an update from Michael Schierl and Professor Gennaro Auletta (quantum physicist from the Gregorian) on the Vatican's new "STOQ" project connecting science, theology and philosophy. It was a real surprise to see the professor at Mass this afternoon. He is, after all, based in Rome! I'm looking forward to a conversation later this evening. Pray for this wonderful initiative of the Church.
