San Antonio and St. Louis

These two stops came on two consecutive days, with about five hours of travelling in between. So it was all fairly hectic.

San Antonio was probably the smallest group I have had, – maybe about fifty people in an annex off a bookshop.  But they were a varied and interesting group. Dignity, the Catholic organisation for LGBT people, were the main sponsors. So there were a good few of those attending.

Sarasota, Florida

Last evening, here in Sarasota, I spoke at the twelfth stop on my tour.  I was back in a protestant church, this time a really nice, modern church where communication was easy and relaxed.

Two interesting features about this stop:

Three former Redemptorist priests attended. It was good to have them there, and I had a great chat with them.  They were of the American provinces, and were generally about my own age.

Some reflections on my tour so far

As I write this I am three weeks into my U.S. speaking tour, and at the Call to Action conference in Memphis, which is the eleventh stop in my eighteen city schedule. It has been a hectic, but extraordinarily interesting few weeks. I am getting the chance to see much of this enormous country, and to talk to Church reform people everywhere I go.
As the same time any impressions I have formed of the American Church will inevitably be tentative, because it will take time and rest before I can fully integrate all that I am experiencing.
