It has been a busy, even hectic, month, as I went to Chicago for the Future of the Catholic Imagination Conference, where the advance copies of The River of the Immaculate Conception were made available for sale. In consequence, I have not had much chance to post other items besides the publication announcement of the book and -- note well -- my lectures and readings, which includes some very exciting events next month, in Washington, D.C. Please scroll down to learn more about those things.
But, now, I want to share something of graven seriousness; my new poem, "Waking in Dresden," has just been published in First Things magazine, one which I hope rightly balances reverence with despair and despair with hope. Click the image that inspires the poem, above, to read it.
I will have other poems published this month, which I may append to this notice, but I did want to include a link to my most recent Catholic Thing column, a bit lighter fare I think, called "The Burnt Orange Carpet Liturgical Test." Click the TCT icon to read.
