About two weeks ago I was listening to Cardinal Dolan & David Brooks (columnist for The New York Times and commentator on the PBS NewsHour) on Catholic Radio, regarding the recent release of David's new book, The Road to Character. As the interview unfolded I could not wait to purchase the book & I'd like to invite you for your summer reading, in the shade or on the beach, to place this book on your reading list. It is very intriguing & offers great hope for future generations!!! For a review please click on http://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/217648/the-road-to-character-by-david-brooks/. Happy Reading!!!!! Fr. Leo
Sarah Elizabeth & Adam Nicholas along with Aldo - a very proud Father of two wonderful children!!!
