How cool is that? A sight I know I would have loved to have seen.

Most of us were not lucky enough to attend the #CatholicConvo — the Convocation of Catholic Leaders currently going on in Orlando, Florida, and from which our own Fr. Aquinas Guilbeau, O.P., has been sending some wonderful dispatches which you can find here.

It’s always better to be where you’d like to be, of course, but thankfully we live in an era where social media can give you a good sense of what you’re missing. I thought I’d share some of the most heartening tweets coming out of the Sunshine State. As you can see, it appears that a splendid, spirit-renewing, thought-provoking, challenging, and energizing time is being had by all!

The Eucharistic Procession through the streets of Orlando, clearly a high point:
