Some of the wonderful things about this conference:
Daily Mass and a closing Mass concelebrated by lots of priests, including 2 bishops.
Grace before meals (and everyone waiting for Grace before digging in)
An Adoration 'chapel' set up.
Meeting so many other medical people with life-centered values.
The closing address by a Cardinal! (on Humanae Vitae).
Raymond Arroyo and Kerri Caveziel speaking at the closing banquet.
Being with my good friend and her husband and 8 of their kids.
Going with them to the local Byzantine Rite Liturgy (Ukrainian in the case).
Trying to figure out how to smuggle home some of her rhubarb!
Will be getting on an airplane soon to head home. I may still be kind of scarce for a while, though. I am working half the week, then dh and I will be flying to Los Angeles for a week to visit our son and to meet his girlfriend's mother.
There are a lot of things I want to say about the conference, but I still need to get my thoughts organized.

Free Market?

from my inbox this morning - sent by a dear friend

A car company can move its factories to Mexico and claim it's a free market.
A toy company can outsource to a Chinese subcontractor and claim it's a free market.
A major bank can incorporate in Bermuda to avoid taxes and claim it's a free market.
We can buy HP Printers made in Mexico. We can buy shirts made in Bangladesh. We can purchase almost anything we want from many different countries.

BUT, heaven help the elderly or even me who dare to buy their prescription drugs from a Canadian (Or Mexico) pharmacy. That's called un-American!

And you think the pharmaceutical companies don't have a powerful lobby?
