One month from today, on August 15, the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Amy and I will be in Buffalo, New York, listening to a conference given by Fr. John Corapi. His Sunday evening program on EWTN is one of the few television programs that can tear her away from the Food Network or Home and Garden Television (not that she watches a lot of television, but when she does, that’s where she’s tuned). She just loves to offer a bad imitation of Fr. Corapi’s baritone voice. She’s wanted to hear him in person for a long time, and she got our tickets as soon as they were available, referring to them often as her “Christmas present” and thanking me for the gift.
Fr. Corapi has recorded a video message regarding the upcoming event.
