I admit, I can't wait for this weekend. Not only will it be much quieter than last weekend, but a chance to gather with friends and some soon to be friends at the annual Deep in History Conference, sponsored by the Coming Home Network. This year's theme is "The Battle for the Faith: North America 1700-1900."
The line-up looks to be the typical list of 'heavy hitters' as in the past years; but I am particularly looking forward to Msgr. Frank Lane's talk on Bardstown. Not simply for the topic matter, but also because he is one of the priests during my seminary formation whom I really admired and thought: "If I could be just even a smidge like him....."
For all those joining together this weekend in Columbus, I will see you there, I can't wait!
