Where is Fr. Christensen?

I'm in Chicago, or more accurately in Libertyville, IL. I am on my first week of a three week per year, three year course which results in a certificate in Spirituality of Diocesan Priesthood and Spiritual Direction. This course is put on by the Institute for Priestly Formation. The classes and yearly retreat are held at Mundelein Seminary. The grounds here at the Seminary are beautiful, and lend themselves easily to prayer and reflection. So, if you would be so kind, offer a prayer for me and the other priests and deacons who are here seeking to better serve the people of God.

Good luck, Father!
Hopefully you can lose some of that weight while you're out there, too! Or else you're going to need that coffin you made sooner rather than later.

It would certainly be good for me to lose a little weight, maybe you can pray for me so that I will be able to be motivated to do so. Thanks in advance for you prayers.

Well, Andrew wasn't very diplomatic about it, but Christ, Dana, you do need to get in shape. What are we to make of man spiritually when he shows no discipline in maintaining a healthy body?

What you say is true. Please pray for me, and if you would, please try to be respectful in using the name of our Blessed Lord, or other words that refer to Him.
