I have many people to thank – a couple hundred thank you notes to write, which I will start next week, I promise.
People have been so generous, and I will go into more detail in a future post about that, but I just wanted to break this recent silence with a heartfelt thank you for all the prayers, Masses, donations, book purchases, gifts and helpful words.

The entire life of a good Christian is in fact an exercise of holy desire. You do not yet see what you long for, but the very act of desiring prepares you, so that when he comes you may see and be utterly satisfied.
St. Augustine, Office of Readings 2/20
