Writing from a Guest Room on the Second Floor of Kenrick-Glennon Seminary, St. Louis

I would ask all our loyal readers to pray for me, as I am giving a series of seminars to the students of the extraordinary Kenrick-Glennon Seminary in St. Louis tomorrow on the subject of liturgy and architecture, from the aesthetic, theological and practical perspectives, as well as a primer on how, as pastors, they might choose and work with an architect. (Unfortunately, outside visitors are not permitted, but I'm told the talk will be recorded and potentially be available online.) This is a wonderful opportunity and I'm quite excited about it, being the largest group of people I have addressed on this critical subject to date. From what I have seen since I arrived here late this afternoon, this is truly a remarkable font of vocations...and one which also understand the great Catholic virtue of hospitality, if our dinner and postprandial chats are any indication.
