In our preparations for heading overseas, we've found ourselves all over the place lately, and this week is no exception. Remember how just a few days ago I was in the middle of a massive snowball fight in Ossining, NY? Well, now we're guests of the Franciscan Mission Service in Washington DC. We're staying at the the FMS house, while several others in our group are spread about at a few other sites. The FMS house ("Casa San Salvador") is less than a block away from the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in America, a beautiful building where our trainings will be held for the next week. Today we had a very interesting discussion about Catholic Social Teachings and social analysis of unjust social structures. Really great stuff, and more on that to come.
