Back From California

I'm back from a great, if brief, visit to my homeland, a.k.a Southern California. I was speaking at San Secondo D'Asti Parish in Ontario,  but I had enough time on Friday to make a swing through some of my old haunts and was able to have lunch and visit with my mom and dad. It was really good to see them, but my dad's health is precarious, which makes me sad. And he's kind of depressed about it, which makes him sad. So, please pray for them that God will strengthen and encourage them both during this time in their life together (more than 50 happy years of marriage) that's proving to be difficult health-wise, and not the peaceful “golden years” they had anticipated. God is good, and he will provide.

The seminar went well, and I was delighted to see several old friends in the audience. That's one of the excellent fringe benefits of traveling the country giving talks on Catholic themes. Having these kinds of opportunities to see far-flung friends is always a treat.

I had some odd and interesting experiences while flying to and fro, which I will recount for you in another post. For now, though, I just wanted to say thanks to all of you who keep me in your prayers.
