Happy Monday to you all. After a week of rest and relaxation in a remote cabin in Michigan, I am back on the road again. Drove up to Madison, Wisconsin last night. I have a workshop to present in a few hours. WLP's own John Angotti and I will be presenting a workshop we have done together several times: "The Doctor and the Rocker Agree: We Exist to Evangelize." Today's workshop will be followed by a concert by John Angotti. The audience is a group of Catholic school teachers gathered for an inservice day. In the workshop, I will present an overview of Church teaching on evangelization, peppered with some personal stories. John, at the keyboard, shares his music and his own journey of faith, challenging the listeners to see that what they do on Sunday at Mass really has to do with what then happens on Monday, and Tuesday, etc. You can learn more about John and his ministry here.
In case you haven't heard, the United States Bishops have developed a new web site regarding the translation of the Roman Missal. Here is the link. I haven't had a chance to look at it in detail, but will do so over the next few days and will offer some thoughts about it.
I'll be back on the blogging bandwagon as the week unfolds. I am headed to Orlando on Thursday to present three workshops and a WLP music showcase at the Orlando Liturgical Conference.
