I was in Costa Rica last week for a meeting of the Vincentian Provincials of Latin America. It was a wonderful, productive gathering — dedicated to preparing a Guide for Vincentian parishes. Those of you who do twitter: I hope you enjoyed my tweets! Here are the photos I twitted. The outcomes of the meeting will be sent to a commission in our General Curia in Rome who will receive the result from the rest of the world and publish probably next year. We had one day off to visit some local sites and a volcano. Cool!

These last days, I’ve been worrying about Staten Island. The hurricane had devastating effects, especially near the shore. Family is safe, thank God. Tomorrow early, I’m off to Mocomoco until next Monday and then down to Cochabamba for Tuesday-Wednesday. I should have some All Saints- All Souls day photos to share. Blessings!
