Thrill of the haste

Signing copies of my book cover after speaking at Seton Hall University (my book hadn't arrived in time), September 25, 2007

Well, I'm rushing off again, this time to speak tonight at Brooklyn's Theology on Tap and tomorrow at St. Paul's Cathedral in Worcester, Mass. — the latter to provide a Catholic alternative to the College of Holy Cross's Planned Parenthood/NARAL-affiliated teen-pregnancy conference. See the Appearances page of for details on those and other upcoming talks.

I would be very grateful if you would please keep me in your prayers and pray especially for God's blessing on the Worcester event. It's important that members of that diocese show support for Bishop Robert J. McManus, who has exhorted Holy Cross to be faithful to its Catholic identity. As Father Thomas J. Euteneuer, president of Human Life International, has noted, "it is very encouraging to see a bishop take a bold stand in defense of his people and the integrity of the Church."
