Bible Summit Logo 2011

Today finds me in the Big Apple to take part in this special Bible festival, giving the homily at the Opening Mass this morning and offering a workshop on Lectio divina twice in the afternoon.

"Bilingual" here means English and Spanish, so, with the help of two priest-associates who translated my text and went over the pronounciation with me, I will take a run at three short paragraphs in the homily in Spanish. 

Here is how the program puts it in the language of Cervantes:

Blogging will resume on my return: there are lots of events recently that have gone without reports, photos.  I hope to make up for that next week.
