Saturday morning news

Headed down to Tewkesbury MA to hear Patrick Madrid speak - and then next week a more local parish is having Scott Hahn come in.

I've had a set of lyrics haunting me lately - just two lines.
"A different kind of poverty now upsets me so" (it could also be "upsets my soul" - hard to hear exactly). Last night I finally tracked down where the phrase came from. The song is "Four and Twenty", the artist is Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, and the song was from my teen years. Now to try to understand why it has been haunting me - or why that song has been joined by another in my brain - a Gordon Lightfoot gem. The excerpt in my brain, "His father's pride was his means to provide, and he's serving 5 years for that reason". I'm pretty sure that the Lightfoot is on the Seven Island album, but what is the name? And why, now ,do these rattle in my brain?

That's the exact same line in "Four and Twenty" that always caught my ear.

Darn, I wish I had known about Patrick speaking. I would have liked to have met him in person. He was a great help to me back in the day. You know, before I was an apostate. ;o)

Where is Scott Hahn speaking and when? I'd love to drive up for it!

I second Amanda's request. I had seen that Patrick was going to be at Manchester's St. Marie but couldn't go that night. Still, it could be nice to see Scott Hahn. He was a factor in our reversion, although with a few good friends who were ... well, not cafeteria!
