The incredibly smart, well-travelled, and deep man-of-faith Fr. Barron; Fr. Steve Grunow, his assistant and my loyal FB friend; and Rozann Carter, who makes the whole operation run smoothly, have been huge supporters of my work. Naturally I am honored to the ground and can hardly wait to regale these erudite folk (in addition to English, Fr. Barron is fluent in French, Spanish, German and Latin) with tales of my checkered past and undying love for Christ and Church. Plus I get to stay at the by the looks of it splendid Mundelein Seminary aka the University of St. Mary of the Lake, at which Fr. Barron is a professor.
In the meantime, check out Fr. Barron's wonderful new book Catholicism (includes photos of Cologne Cathedral, the young Karl Wojtlya, Botticelli's "The Madonna of the Pomegranate" and more!) which I have been savoring and will post about as soon as I've finished and digested.
Also, fyi, tomorrow, October 18, 2011, I'll be on the Ave Maria Radio show "Kresta in the Afternoon," from 4:20-4:50 EST.
