I realize that making a blog post on Monday titled "The Week in Review" is a little like the statement from the teacher in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory: "I've just decided that the tests we take on Fridays to determine what we've learned during the week will now take place on Monday before we've learned it. But since today is Tuesday, isn't doesn't matter in the slightest." I think, too, that, since I seem to have time to make only one post a week, it might be more worthwhile to take these opportunities to go more in-depth on topics, rather than hitting highlights. Let's give it a try.
Before taking off on that route, though, I want to mention an event from last week that you all have the opportunity to participate in without the messiness of time travel: video of last week's Aquinas Lecture, given by Fr. Augustine Thompson, OP, on the subject of baptismal theology in 13th century Italy, is available here at the DSPT website. It was quite interesting. Check it out!
