From August 27, 2018
Yesterday I had a great phone call from Fr. John Dear, the former Jesuit and famous peace activist and popular author. We spoke for just under 90 minutes. It was a delightful conversation. He asked many questions about the Haiti mission and he committed to spending a week with me in Haiti sometime between November and January. He told me about his nationwide speaking tour for Pace e Bene. John and I first met at a Catholic bookseller’s convention in Chicago back in 2001.
