No, it wasn't a mirage. Some of you may have spotted me back in South Bend over the weekend. I was there to officiate the wedding of Emily Gersey and Cody McAuley. The wedding went well, they are a great couple and it was my pleasure to witness their exchange of consent, which as all canon lawyers know: consent makes the marriage.
I am looking forward to a more permanent return on Thursday. If anyone has the chance to offer a prayer to St. Raymond of Penyafort (patron of Canonists), I would appreciate prayers for my exam on Wednesday.
God bless you all,
