I've been spending the last two nights at the Cathedral for the 40 hours devotion with Fr. Mitch Pacwa as the guest speaker. It has been fantastic. I also met both of our Bishops and had a great little (tiny) conversation with Bishop Martino. He was very interested and animated especially since I told him I was a convert. His Excellency wanted to know where I was from and what denomination I came from. His demeanor and graciousness were extremely edifying.
Last year I went and blogged a much longer post. Fr. Benedict Groeschel was the speaker then and talked a lot about reform. Fr. Pacwa is mainly talking about scripture, Our Lady, and Our Lord in the Eucharist. I picked up one of his books too because it fits with a conversation I was having the other night - "Catholics and the New Age" which discusses how we as Catholics need to handle (reject) New Age religions and philosophy. Couldn't have come at a better time!
