Arrived and rested.

Greetings to all from Istanbul.  Our flight went without a glitch, and our hosts gave us a good dinner and settled us into Fatih Koleji guest rooms for a good night’s sleep.  Mass this morning will be at St. Esprit Cathedral, and a morning with local church officials.  Afternoon touring Hagia Sophia, Topkapi, Hippodrome and Blue Mosque.  Thanks for your prayers.

I have been a Catholic priest for nearly fifty years, most of that time serving in parish and college campus ministry. I also have professional degrees in theology and liturgy, as well as institutional management, and continue avidly to explore pastoral theology, Scripture, liturgy, ecumenical and interfaith relations, and spiritual direction. I have a passion for sharing insight into our Christian heritage through teaching, writing, and leading pilgrimages, especially to Early Christian World sites in Turkey. Now actively retired from parish ministry, I live at Nazareth House in Los Angeles.
