A Wonderful Lady

This past weekend in Harrisburg, PA - I had the brief opportunity to meet Dr. Alice Von Hildebrand. She was speaking at the conference and was selling some books. I bought her book "The Privilege of Being a Woman" for my daughter and had it signed.

Coincidentally I picked up April issue of Crisis Magazine. The first letter to the editor is about an aritcle they ran on "Eight Habits of Highly Effective Bishops". (My bishop - Bishop Robert Baker, was cited twice in the article). In this first letter to the editor, Dr. Alice Von Hildebrand writes, "... would it not be desirable ... that a bishiop reintroduce asceticism in seminaries: fasting, abstinence, hair shirts, and discipline?"

I second the suggestion heartily.
