Mark Shea day(s)

Our parish, Saint Brigid, invited the Catholic writer/apologist Mark Shea to speak on a few topics this weekend. Beth and I were privileged to be able to pick him up. He was already in town (if you consider Conyers in town) speaking to some high school students on Friday at the Monastery of the Holy Spirit.

You will be glad to know he is a great guy. I was slightly concerned as things sometimes get heated on his blog (including his responses), but as I continually seem to find people are universally nicer in person than online.

He spoke on three topics. Friday he spoke on Tradition; Saturday he spoke on Scripture and the Eucharist. All three were great presentations. If you have the chance to get him to come to your parish do not hesitate.
