Talking in Memphis: Video of my Father Ed lecture at the Cathedral

On April 3, it was my great joy to speak on Father Ed: The Story of Bill W.'s Spiritual Sponsor before an audience of five hundred at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Memphis to mark the sixty-fourth anniversary of Father Ed's death in that very city. I am grateful to share this video of my talk, courtesy of the Catholic Diocese of Memphis. Many thanks to Bishop David Talley; Joe Birch of Action News, who acted as MC, and everyone who made this extraordinary event possible. It was one of the great experiences of my life to connect with so many people who were eager to learn about Father Edward Dowling, SJ, and honor him on what perhaps might someday become known as his feast day.
