Lay Provincial Council meeting

Today marked the opening of the Dominican Lay Provincial Council meeting for the Province of the Holy Name of Jesus (Western Province) at St. Albert's Priory in Oakland. I forgot the camera, so will have to take a few snaps tomorrow, but remembered late to grab one a few minutes ago: this one captures John with some of the delegates who are still going strong!

Those cups make it look so, well, dry. the bottles on the corner table give it away. Yes, things are familiar in this scene!
Fr. Vincent Serpa this morning started by reminding us that "It's all about Jesus, centered on Good Friday" - and if that is not central to what you are doing, then you need to look very hard at if you really are being Dominican.

John gave a 30 minute presentation on the connection between the Dominican Social Justice web sites and such abominations as "the new cosmology" and the "earth charter."

as the saying goes, Know Jesus, know peace; no Jesus, no peace.
