hubby and i caught up with father robert barron while visiting a dear friend at mundelein seminary. we had a wonderful and unhurried conversation and as always, he was very gracious. he shared about the nearing completion of john paul ll chapel in the seminary, a project very close to his heart and was happy to relate that a filipino saint, san lorenzo ruiz, is dedicated to one of the stained glass windows. he invited us to attend the chapel’s dedication mass in october. he is also looking forward to his trip to the philippines next year.
i am a big fan of father barron and meeting him again was special.
father barron is the rector of mundelein seminary. he is the host of catholicism and founder of word on fire.
