I just got home from a whirlwind two days in Wichita. I had a great time there, and find that speaking about the good news of the Catholic Church is invigorating and exhilarating, even if it’s also quite exhausting. In two days, I spoke to two Catholic High Schools to about 2000 kids, did a Theology On Tap presentation (which was one of the highlights of the trip), did a radio interview, and then did a presentation for parents. A busy, exciting, and remarkably fulfilling two days. I’ll be writing more about my experience soon, but for now, here’s a photo a friend took at one of the high schools. I certainly never dreamed when I was in high school that I’d be talking about the Catholic Church’s teaching on homosexuality to a bunch of high schoolers. But you never know where God will lead you, especially since we know He moves in mysterious ways.

  1. Fantastic! I have to wonder, can you assess whether at least some of them are able to understand and accept what you say? Are they able, at least a little, to tune out the ever-increasing roar of the culture which impassioned by a confused compassion insists that the Church’s teachings are antiquated and hateful, and tune into the goodness and the light of Her wisdom? God be with you dear brother!

    • The reports I’ve gotten back have been that it really resonated with some of the students. The real benefit I think comes from at least beginning the conversation. I’m looking forward to hearing some reports in a week or so, when I check back in with the folks there in Wichita.

      God be with you as well!

  2. Any chance they recorded your talk there? It would be great to get your talk to highschoolers on the internet somewhere so that your message could reach many more young people who are suffering alone.
