In the last year of his life, Saint Anthony of Padua had a tree house built in a walnut tree, to use as a hermitage, a place of prayer and contemplation. These are reflections coming from my contemplating God's world as a Secular Franciscan.

Light at End of the Tunnel
Last Thursday, May 3, 2012, was my last class in the Permanent Diaconate Program for the Archdiocese of Boston. There is still a final exam to do, as well as some papers, but the academic part of formation will be done. I still have to attend some practicum workshops; and I have to go to some evaluation interviews. My classmates and I will then be waiting for final approval from Cardinal Sean. I cannot believe that it is all coming to the finish. It has been six long years, but finally, one way or another, there is light at the end of the tunnel.
