Well, EWTN Live with Fr Mitch Pacwa went well this evening. I am afraid I had to go it alone, Fr Owen was not feeling too well today, so after a heavy schedule, he was too ill go on the live show, so he took to his bed, where he is now as I write. Say a prayer that he'll be ok for tomorrow.
Fr Mitch was an absolute gentleman and was very gracious on the show. He is a wonderful man and priest: wise, prayerful, witty, a fount of knowledge, and friendly: a true son of St Ignatius. We have been having dinner with him for the last few days and he has kept us both informed and entertained.
The show went live this evening: 8pm US Eastern, 7pm US Central and 1am Ireland and UK. It will be repeated on the Ireland/UK channel later on Thursday, at 8pm. If you miss it, you can watch it on EWTN Live's page on the website: it'll be up in a couple of days, I think.
My abiding memory of the show will be that of pickled herrings! Watch it and find out why.
Now, to finish some prep for tomorrow, and then bed. Do not be surprised if the blog goes silent at any stage - we are finding things hard going, so blogging may have to take a rest.
