Eucharistic Convention in Auckland, April 2009

I am happy to announce that I have been invited to speak at the Eucharistic Convention in Auckland, New Zealand. The dates of the convention are April 17, 18, and 19. I look forward to visiting such a beautiful country and reaping the spiritual benefits of the convention. For those from New Zealand who have read my books and who visit this blog, I look forward to meeting you in person. Please pray for a safe journey. I have never been so far from home before, although my mother the world traveler assures me that there is nothing to it at all. At any rate, going to Colorado to visit my sister will now seem like nothing. Share

Ah, Elena, you make me wish I were still in NZ and could hear you speak! =(

Congratulations and good luck!

I wish you would! I am beginning to realize how many friends I have on the other side of the world!

Oh this would have been a short skip and a jump from India....too bad we are returning to the states the month before, otherwise it would have been a great excuse to see that country--and to see you and hear you speak!!

I'm delighted for you, Elena. Such an opportunity for the historian in you to come to the fore cannot be missed. Looking forward to hearing all about it.

We here in Auckland are equally excited at the prospect of meeting you at the beautiful Eucharistic Convention.

Have a safe, enjoyable and relaxing journey, for God and your guardian angel will be with you all the way.

Hi Elena

That's wonderful that you are coming down to our beautiful country! By the way if your friends want to come down it is the best time cause the $US is currently worth twice as much as the $NZ. We are sure looking forward to having you come down and share God's wisdom and love. I have been a speaker at the Eucharistic Convention myself and it is a wonderful experience. The people are very friendly. You can learn more about me by my website www.godfact.com and my articles on Theolgoy of the Body at http://tob.catholicexchange.com/category/columnists/brendan-roberts/

God bless

Thank you, Veritas, I will give a complete report upon my return.

Thank you, Terry, please ask the angels to help me to deal with the jet lag! I wish I was able to make my stay a bit longer.

Thank you, Brendan, that is good news about the currency. I will check out your website and articles. Thanks for the links, and especially for the encouragement! I am looking forward to the trip!
