Our gathering is done and was, i think, very fruitful. I'll blog about it a bit later. Right now, I must finish tweaking Making Disciples - that is the task of the weekend. I will blog sporadically as "quickies" come to my attention - but anything that requires thought will have to wait!

But I wanted to share this interesting piece on a veteran Franciscan missionary in South Korea and how his work has been integral to the remarkable growth of the Catholic Church there."In 1958", observes Giancarlo, "in (South) Korea there were no more than 800,000 Catholics. Now there are almost 5 million. More than half of these received baptism as adults".
