John Allen at the Snows

Is anyone planning on going to see John Allen at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows Saturday for "The Francis Revolution?" Here is how the Snows describes it. 

Throughout his public life, both as an individual and as a religious leader, Pope Francis has been noted for his humility, his concern for the poor and his commitment to dialogue as a way to build bridges between people of all backgrounds, beliefs and faiths. 
Join us as John Allen, an author and reporter for the Vatican, talks about Pope Francis’ first year in the papacy.

The Bear is probably going. Tickets are $25; call here: (618) 394-6270.

The Bear does not think Reuben sandwiches or the salad bar are included, though.


  1. An interesting topic for the Solemnity of All Saints.

  2. The Bear has a few questions for Mr. Allen. It looks like an interesting opportunity, and, at worst, he gets a Reuben sandwich. At least its better than the goofy stuff the Snows usually puts on, unless Mr. Allen's new gig at CRUX has pulled him over the edge of the loony ledge.


Moderation is On.
