Kids: Love ‘em, but none of my own (there’s this matter of a vow)
Living arrangements: I live with 7 other men in an old convent.

Okay, first of all, you need to know why you were in an oxygen tent at age 5. Ask your mother. Second, frozen pizza does not count as something you cook. And you and Joe would probably be surprised to know that Santa used to put olives in my stocking instead of candy. And not as punishment!

Hey, is there also a Mark Massa, SJ? I was reading Commonweal yesterday (might not have been the latest issue--I forget), and the author kept quoting and referring to a Mark Massa, SJ. At first I thought it was you, until I noticed that the last name was consistently spelled MAssa instead of MOssa. Just curious...

I can't resist, Mossa:

Yeah, um...olives aren't vegetables, they're a fruit.

Of course, I'm not keen on olives, either.

scratch that last comment!

The "Mark" who commented on my version that mushrooms aren't vegetables is another Mark! I just noticed!

Yes. He's my "long-lost cousin," at least that's what we tell people.

There's mention of him in a post below.
