As you know, last week Bishop Jenky issued a directive to all the priests in the Diocese of Peoria to read a letter at each of the weekend Masses. I have some observations about the letter, but first, here’s what Bishop Jenky wrote:
I’ve written before about Fr. John Hardon, a spiritual advisor and mentor of mine during the 1990s. From 1989 to 1999, I attended 11 men’s retreats that were given by Fr. Hardon. He died in 2000 at the age of 84.
