Speaking at Marytown at an event heralding the Year of Mercy

I have long wanted to speak at Marytown in Libertyville, Illinois, which is the National Shrine of St. Maximilian Kolbe, whose intercession led me into the Catholic Church. Now, thanks to the Institute on Religious Life, that dream is coming true, as the IRL has invited me to speak at Marytown on December 5 as part of a day of recollection in preparation for the Year of Mercy. My topic, "Remembering God's Mercy: What Pope Francis Can Teach Us about Healing of Memories," is drawn from my upcoming book, also titled Remembering God's Mercy.
