I was very happy to take part in the Pre-Assembly for the Paulist Fathers which helps inform the Paulists on their future direction as a community. We had a lot of good dialogue between us lay leaders and the priests of the community. I'm often impressed with the quality of these things--and I'm a tough audience--I want to chew my arm off at "process meetings" most of the time.
In general, there's not a whole lot to report other than that the Paulists look like they may possibly try to open a case for cannonization for their founder Issac Hecker--who's vision was to evangelize America. Could be the right saint to really give us a great vision of American Catholicism.
