When it’s your first day back after a long weekend out of town, it can be difficult to readjust to the rhythm of things for the first day. This is especially true if the town where you happen to live seems to have jumped ahead on the calendar from May to July during your absence. So taking a page from Margaret Perry over at 10KP, I present to you a few clippings which you may find of interest:
– It was wonderful to be home and spend both my birthday and Mother’s Day with my parents. I’m grateful for all of the good wishes I’ve received from you on social media, but most of all I’m grateful to God and to my parents for being open to His gift of life.
– Had a terrific time on Thursday evening getting to listen to and briefly meet the very gracious Colleen Carroll Campbell at her well-attended talk and book signing at the Pauline Sisters’ Bookshop in Old Town Alexandria. If you haven’t read her book, “My Sisters the Saints”, I urge you to do so. You can check out my review here.
– My friend Dr. Peter A. Redpath, Rector of the Adler-Aquinas institute, was recently interviewed by the Cardinal Newman Society on the upcoming Catholic Education Foundation’s program, “Creating Young Catholic Leaders” in New York, which will be open to high school juniors and seniors from around the country.

– And finally, if you’ve not one of the millions of people who have already seen this recent viral video of Superman using a GoPro Camera yet, take a moment to do so now. The reason why will become apparent on this blog a bit later on this week.
