Acton U: Now More than Ever

Fr. Z has been king enough to put together his day experiences at Acton U, though these days can be tiring.... As a teacher in an all-girls Catholic school I was captivated by Fr.'s encounter with a compatriot in the battle, as he recounts:

"At breakfast a young fellow who is a religion teacher at a Catholic all girls high school told me that, during Lent, he started class each day by playing my podcasts, and, so he related, the girls really liked them. I am left with the amusing image of a class room full of teenage girls listening to Fulton Sheen and Jacques-BĂ©nigne Bossuet."  

Never too old to learn!
