I am at a gathering of the Provincial Councils of the U.S. Dominican Provinces in Orlando, FL. The Master of the Order, Fr. Carlos Aspiroz Costa, OP, and his Socius to the American Provinces, Fr. Ed Ruane, OP were also here to respond to some questions regarding the whole Order and the place of the American Provinces in it, along with other topics.
I was out for a walk and snapped a picture of a rare sight, the Pasty-Faced Intellectual. Something rarely seen in the wild, given that their normal habitat is the dark enclosures of the library, the chapel. They nest in pulpits and cloisters, but with frequent forays into the arts, sciences, and philosophy. In fact, they can be found at home in virtually any habitat.
