Oh Canada!

If you live in Quebec, I invite you to Laval University for a lecture I am giving on the role of bishops in the U.S. public square, a part of the university's day long assessment of that issue as part of its series on the reception of Vatican II. I do not have precise information about which building the conference will be in, but my talk is at 10:45 Thursday morning.

Consequently, I will have a morning post tomorrow before catching my flight, and a morning post on Thursday, but the rest of the time will be en route and, once arrived, meeting with confreres at Laval and exploring a city I have not visited since I was about four. The good news - it is supposed to be one of the most beautiful cities in the Americas. The bad news - the high temperature will be about 30 degrees! Mon Dieu!
