Hi there folks. I'm headed out tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon (I have to teach in the morn which to may chagrin means I'm gonna miss the free lunch) to Orange County and the Magnificat Day of Faith at the Crystal Cathedral, which apparently they are now calling the Future Christ Cathedral.
The place looks kind of scary, doesn't it? I mean is it a football stadium or a church? Nonetheless, the good fathers seem to have things firmly in hand and I can only pray not to get lost in the parking lot.
Fr. Peter Cameron, editor-in-chief of Magnificat, will be there, which is very exciting as we've yet to meet in the flesh. My friend Rita Simmonds, also from NYC (in her case Brooklyn) checked in via phone Fri. night to report that the flight was fine and she was safely ensconced in Garden Grove (I think she might have called it Grove Garden, or possibly Orange Grove--those wacky Easterners!).
I would personally like to extend a warm welcome to all the New York folk who have had a rough, rough week and then a long day of travel. We are thrilled to have you in Southern California! Ubi caritas et amor.
