Saturday morning we got up early and headed for campus to catch a couple of the seminars. The first seminar was called “The Catholic Church: Why We State, Where We Need to Go”. The panel consisted of a Jesuit priest, a woman who is a Catholic lay leader and heads the Social Justice department, and a man who had been a Jesuit but left to get married. They had some very interesting and spiritually insightful things to say. After they shared a bit, they opened it up to the rest of the room (a fairly large classroom that was packed) for people to share their own thoughts and to ask questions. It was really good and we were glad we went.
After that, we went to Gaston Hall (the largest auditorium on campus) for “A Conversation with George Tenet”. I’m here to tell you something you might not know: the man can NOT sit properly in a chair.
