What a treat is was to spend a little time with my good friend and colleague, NCR columnist Benedictine Sister Joan Chittister, in the Frontier Airline Conference center in Milwaukee where Call to Action is having its annual convention. I found Joan near the entrance of the center, drinking a morning coffee with Benedictine Sister Maureen Tobin, who manages Chittister's very active schedule. We sat together and I had the chance to watch this one of a kind Benedictine greet her many admirers as they entered the center. Chittister will be a keynote speaker Sunday. Always energetic, creative and hospitable, Chittister is always a big draw. Throughout the day she was autographing books near the Benetvision exhibit on the third floor of the conference center.
