Hmm! Benedictines it seems . . . but using the scapular as a tow-rope?

I am skating out (inside an Alaska Airlines plane) to attend the priestly ordination of a man whom I have advised for several years.

His name is Scott Settimo, and his family home is San Diego.

He has been studying at the seminary that the Benedictine monks operate at Mt. Angel Abbey, Oregon.

Scott's ordination will bring the total number of priests of the diocese of Juneau, Alaska, to TWELVE.

Visit www.dioceseofjuneau.org and you'll see his picture at the bottom of their front page.

I'll be back here (San Diego) on Friday night.
