    Brother Tom! Fantastic to hear from you! I am not really a regular blogger, but if an issue takes me then I will write about that, usually I will post at least once a month if not more often.

    This Lent proved to be one of the best I can remember, the focused nature of the OPA Postulant Class really allowed me to concentrate and therefore be more present during this past lent.

    I hope this comment finds you and yours well and you remain daily in my prayers.
