Jesuit On His Experiences Of The Blessed John Paul II Beatification

The things that struck me most was the way in which millions of people gathered in one place could be so full of a genuine joy and celebration....I have often commented on how well everyone treated everyone else, how genuinely nice people were, but there was a different and even better spirit hovering over this moment.
It was a moment of real jubilation, a moment of real joy, so much so that I saw more than a few tears on the via and walking into the square. 
There was a sense in pride in the great and rich diversity of people that were there from all over the world, each feeling joy in celebrating who they were and where they were from without doing it to the detriment of others......Today, at the beatification it was a time to celebrate..."
Link (here) to read the full and lengthy blog post at The Road to La Storta written by Mr. Michael Rogers, S.J. a scholastic.

I would like to point out that this post is excellent! It shows a great behind the scenes view point of the Beatification of John Paul II. Jesuit Scholastic Mike Rogers has a great writing style and is truly an original. Put his site in your bookmarks.

Fr. Milton T. Walsh, "To always be thinking somehow about Jesus": The Prologue of Ludolph's Vita Christi

From the San Francisco Chronicle, October 5, 2002:

The Rev. Milton T. Walsh was booked on charges of two counts of lewd or lascivious acts with a child under 14 years old and is free on $100,000 bail. He was placed on leave in August from St. Patrick's Seminary in Menlo Park, where he has been a professor of theology since 1997.

Dear Anonymous,
Have you had personal dealings with Fr. Milton?

This won't succeed as a matter of fact, that's exactly what I consider.
