Thanks be to God, and to all of you for your prayers. I made it back to NY safely, and am now busy with school work, such as writing my homily for Matins tomorrow morning.
My apologies to Pedro for not calling him when I was in Dallas. We got in very late, and ever since it was one big whirlwind of church stuff. I would not have had time to see you even if I had called. But my short stay in Dallas was awesome, and I hope to fly down there sometime later this year (possibly the summer), at which time I hope to have a chance to meet you and your family.
