THE JOURNEY BACK HOME


DC METRO

Hey folks, here's the link to my conversion story on EWTN's "The Journey Home" with Marcus Grodi. Question: why does Marcus looks giant and why do I look like a midget?

Speaking of journeying home, I've been in DC all week and HAVE LOVED IT! I'm staying at the Dominican Priory (not to be confused with the Dominican House of Studies across from the National Shrine) and the priests and brothers have been magnificent. Tons of walking and sightseeing. All is much more beautiful, charming and graceful than I imagined.

Today I'm headed to Dumbarton Oaks and then tomorrow I fly home. My plane doesn't leave till 3:30 so I'm going to arrive at Dulles early, take advantage of one of the two United Club passes I get each year with my Visa, and relax with food and beverages before boarding and being whisked back to LA at a reasonable hour (instead of having to get up at 4 am and schlep in a twilight state to LAX as happens when you live on the West Coast and fly East).

Thanks to all the well-wishers who watched the show last night and wrote or texted.

  1. I sit here with tears in my eyes after listening to your interview on the Journey Home podcast. I can't tell you exactly what you said that touched me so deeply and personally, but thank you!

    1. I'm so glad the interview touched you--in this culture of Catholic "public intellectuals," we sometimes seem to lose sight of the fact that Catholicism is about having a relationship with Christ...nothing neat, or linear, or able to be reduced to a marketable brand about that...Thank you so much.

  3. You did great, really! You were on-point, listening carefully to his questions, but also showed your sense of humor. Your hair looked elegant.

  4. Thank you for your honesty and your tears on the Journey Home episode Heather. It brought me to tears as well. I too have much in my past to deeply regret, but all that garbage is what brought me back to the beautiful mercy of Christ. Next to that mountain, my little trash pile just withers. Your story was and is beautiful. Thanks for sharing it. God’s blessings to you.
