Tonight, we had our annual Humanities Conference.  Our special guest was Fr Mark, a Dominican priest who teaches at Barry University.  He did a great powerpoint presentation on “Visual Christianity: Interpreting the Theological Tradition.”  Lots of architecture from Revena, Italy as well as Wahaka, Mexico.

Lenten Mass @ St John Vianney College Seminary, Miami, FLMASS – (Fr Alvarez) — today is the feast day of St Jerome Emiliani.  He was a soldier who left the military life to pursue great acts of charity, especially in caring for the sick in hospitals, the poor and children in orphanages.  — his life resonates with me, especially with my past interest in the military (in which health concerns removed)

Immaculate Conception School observationFIELD TRIP — for our Ministerial Practicum class, in the afternoon, we went to a local Catholic school to observe the teaching styles and techniques in order to prepare our own lesson plans.  I was in a 7th grade English class at Immaculate Conception Catholic School and, embarassingly, couldn’t answer some of the questions my self.  — when do you use who or whom?

A River Runs Through It (film)MOVIE NIGHT — after dinner, the Humanities Department sponsored a movie night featuring A River Runs Through It with great discussion afterwards. — I didn’t get that deep into the movie, but after discussion, I have a greater appreciation for its subtle lessons and observation on life’s journey.

Bodies - The ExhibitBODIES .. The Exhibition — some friends invited me to the BODIES Exhibit now showing on Las Olas Blvd in Ft Lauderdale.  It was creapy at first, but very educational.  I especially liked the warning sign before the fetal specimens showing several stages of a baby’s development.  Also got to touch a real brain and the lungs of someone who smoked for 23 years.  No photography allowed, so I found some pics online (click picture).  If you can stomach the creapiness, I highly recommend it — $25 + $5 audio tour.  (Humanities reimbursement, too)
