Bear With Me, Prayers Appreciated

I've been trying my best to post every couple of days lately, but you may see a drop off in the coming weeks. You see I'm simultaneously trying to pack--I leave New Orleans tomorrow--and trying to finish my preparations for a series of talks I'm giving at the International Institute for Clergy Formation in New Jersey next week. I head to Manhattan tomorrow where, believe it or not, I will get some relief from the noise here (they are renovating my house and workmen are everywhere, banging everything!). Please pray for the success of my talks. I will be speaking to priests and deacons about ministry to young Catholics--six one-hour talks! I will be officially homeless for the summer, as this is officially my last full day of living in this community, and I can't move into my new community in Cambridge, MA until after Labor Day. The Jesuits at Holy Cross in Worcester, MA will be offering me their hospitality this summer while I write a book and do some ministry work in my hometown. Please pray for my writing as well. I've been wanting to write a book on the spiritual life for young adults for some time now and I finally have my chance!

I hope to return to my regular posting schedule after the Institute is done on July 2.

Peace,

Mark

Good God, I've never spoken for an hour on any topic. At least you'll have six chances to get it right. :)

Good luck Mark!

May all go well...and hurry back. I've been enjoying your reflections on Ignatius.
