Follow signs to Disneyworld

Spending some time in Orlando, FL this week. If you'd like to follow some of the LCWR assembly the only place I know that is filing a daily report is the National Catholic Reporter. So you can get their angle on things there if you wish.

Franciscan Ilia Delio's presentations on cosmology and its relationships to religion/Christianity were magnificent. The DVDs of them will be in our library at the Mount soon. She had many thoughtful quotations throughout her two talks. Here's one that I particularly liked: "If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the people to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.” (Antoine de Saint-ExupĂ©ry)

Here are some shots that are particular to Florida I think. All of them exist under and amidst palm trees and 90+ temperatures. HOT!
