John Paul II Eucharistic Center

The new John Paul II Eucharistic Center is being completed next to the Poor Clares' monastery in Hanceville. As it says on their website, its purpose is to lead "Catholics and non-Catholics alike to a deeper realization of Our Lord's Eucharistic Presence." It'll have all sorts of exhibits, visuals, etc. They sent a crew to San Antonio today to tape an interview with me for one of the interactive exhibits. I spoke about the priestly vocation and the Real Presence of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament. Those are two topics about which, once I get going, I tend not to stop! It's kind of sobering to think that someone will just have to touch a screen, and they'll get me talking at them! Hope the "off" button is in a prominent place...
