Fr. Cush is a die-hard comic book fan and an honest-to-goodness geek. He’s also an enthusiastic raconteur and teacher, and a great dinner companion. But I digress. If you’re in the neighborhood, go. Listen. Geek out. You’ll have a great time.
Below is an image of him with me and my wife from our recent visit to Rome.
