The conference went off splendidly, although I had some difficulty getting home due to a missed train (which led to a missed flight, which led to changing to get the last seat on the last flight out -- the next available flight being on Sunday; and I almost missed that flight because of insanely slow security at the Philadelphia airport -- when I managed to get to the gate they had shut the door and were paging me for the last time; but all's well that ends well). It was, in fact, simply excellent.
In the off chance that anyone reading this will be at the Pacific APA next week, and wants to meet up, I will be there Thursday and Friday for an interview.
Today is the memorial for St. John Climacus in the Eastern calendars (Maronite, Melkite, Eastern Orthodox, etc.). He is one of the most important of the Eastern saints. Unfortunately, his classic work of ascetic theology, The Ladder of Divine Ascent, does not appear to be online.
Next week, of course, is Holy Week. Maranatha.
Thought for the Day: It is not your job to make things go right, but only to do what is right.
