A few weeks ago a film crew came to the house to shoot footage for a series of short films on the Brothers' community, apostolate, and prayer, and Br. Chris Sweeney, one of our vocation guys, just sent me the links. Check them out and tell us what you think! (No, I wasn't crazy about being videoed, but sometimes you gotta take one for the team. Good work, Chris.)

I'm turning 32 this week (yeesh), so the parents came in town this last weekend to visit. We did the usual running around - hit the farmer's market, went down to the Finger Lakes, went to church at the Catholic Student Center and walked around the university. Good to visit, and mercifully my reading schedule was lighter this week, so I could afford to visit without being unendurably swamped with work after they left.
