study

Jun 8, 2012

I was not a good student at high school. On a good day my exam results reached average.  Many of my teachers taught me what I had to learn, but no one thought of telling me how to learn it.  

Tonight I leave NZ for two months study leave at the Liturgical Institute at Mundelein University in Chicago.  Some of you who have been reading this blog for a couple of years will remember that I was there two years ago.

There have been a few things to organise in the week since I discovered that I was definitely to study this year.  Now I am at the airport in Auckland, about to board the flight.

The blog will continue with regular updates while I am away.

Please keep me in your prayer.  I pray daily for all readers of this blog, whoever and wherever you may be.

  1. All the best with the study John, I am just completing my first Paper at GSC – Canon Law. If you get a chance, pop over to Marytown next door and say hi from me. Brother Juniper will look after you :) God Bless and safe travel,

  2. Matt thank you. Gook luck with the GSC papers. Drove in to Mundelein this afternoon passing Marytown and remembered that you were there. I will visit.

Thomas was not doubting as much as seeking; he was expressing the desire of one who truly yearns for adult faith.
