Back in town briefly.

Ann Arbor was tres interesting. In the small but mighty band I worked with were two eager young men (one a priest) from Slovakia and a young deacon from Hungary who organized the recent City Mission in Budapest. This mission is one in the series begin several years ago by Cardinal Schonborn of Vienna and the late Cardinal Lustiger of Paris. He was a trifle frustrated that there hadn't been more explicit proclamation of the kergyma but he said that it was such a new idea for the Church that had survived so many decades of Communist oppression that it was still very fruitful. What primarily changed was the Church's understanding of herself.

And there was the husband/wife team who have lead huge meetings in stadiums that hold 50,000 - 60,000 in Africa. So many fascinating experiences of mission in so many countries. Aside from the one priest and several deacons, the rest were lay men and woman - talk about lay apostles! Wow! This Renewal ministries group is really unlike any other group I've ever worked with. So it was a privilege to spend time with them.

And yet it was amazing to see that what we have been wrestling with here - mostly in a western context - seemed to be really useful to them. Also visited the Domino's Pizza HQ, attended Mass in their chapel, and saw all the Catholic apostolates (including the studio where Al Kresta records his shows) that are housed there. The Ann Arbor area is a Catholic hotbed situated in a Berkley like University town.

Off in about 30 minutes to Pueblo where Fr. Mike, Gustavo, Alma, Janet, and I will be putting on Called & Gifted workshops in English and Espanol this weekend.

Back Saturday evening. They'll have to hold the debate without me.

Then to prep for my week long trip to Athens, Ohio to do research in one of my guilty pleasures: the remarkable Catholic Revival of the 17th century.

To contemplate how another post-conciliar generation of Catholics responded to the enormous challenges of their day and powerfully shaped the world around them.

More blogging on Sunday.

If your reservations involved sleeper accommodations (Amtrak's First Class on their long-distance overnight trains) on either your late-arriving train or your missed connection, you will get a hotel voucher for the unplanned overnight stay. Customer Service will commonly offer travel vouchers of $100 or more off future Amtrak travel to inconvenienced passengers. This is true for all classes of service. If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time.

She gets no reward, but the son gets free cable, food, sleeping until noon and no curfew. I don't see any change and am now having to make the hard decisions for my own life, which don't include any of the ongoing drama.
