Altar call

Listening to an audience member's question at the Legion of Mary youth conference in Dublin, Ireland, June 9. Photo by Fiona Hodge.

The nicest comment I heard about my talk at the Chesterton conference — indeed, the highest compliment I've ever received after a speech — came via the blogger who calls himself Unknown Poet. Although he missed my talk, he was standing outside the auditorium afterwards, when the crowd was exiting. One of those leaving, he said, was a Catholic priest who exclaimed, "I could marry her!"
