Along with fellow MOJ-er Michael Scaperlanda (and a few thousand of our closest friends), I had the pleasure of attending and participating in the USCCB-hosted Convocation down in Orlando this weekend. The theme for the 3 day event -- which gathered together a wide range of clergy, bishops, lay leaders, teachers, diocesan workers, etc. -- was "The Joy of the Gospel in America." Here is the website. I participated on a "breakout" panel -- one of dozens -- on church-state relations. A number of the keynote talks, masses, homilies, etc. were recorded (and are still being recorded) -- I'd encourage MOJ readers to check it out!
