I traveled to the Southern Hemisphere (almost 30 hours!) at the request of the Institute for World Evangelization (ICPE), where I taught theology for their “Catholic Week”. The ICPE, which includes locations in Malta, Poland, Italy, Singapore,
In addition to speaking at the school during the day, I was also invited by Archbishop John Dew (who came to part of the training) to present Genesis to Jesus for the Archdiocese of Wellington. It was a smashing success.
I have to admit that it was hard to leave the incredible natural beauty “down under”. Before I left to catch my interminable flight home, I stood in the parking lot of St. Gerard’s monastery on a hill overlooking a gorgeous bay, thanking God for the beauty of his creation and the people I met. Instead of sadness, though, it filled me with hope, knowing that all of this is but a foretaste of what is to come. Thanks for your prayers and may God bless all of you as we work together for His kingdom.
