This morning a reporter from the Catholic Times will be visiting me to interview for a series of stories they are working on. Bishop Lucas - as I understand it - has asked the Catholic Times to provide a series of stories - interviews of sorts, really - with priests of the Diocese during the month of April as a way to highlight priestly vocations. I think there is also a move to do something of the same for the diaconate, but that will come later.
The reporter called me the other day and we arranged the appointment shortly before I teach class at the high school. After our interview, she wants to take pictures of me teaching my sophomore class. I have asked the class to be on their best behavior - I hope they come through; they can be a rowdy bunch.
I am always a bit leary working with reporters because so many of them seem to the innate ability to simply get the story wrong. I do not say this to disparage all reporters but, as in many things, a few bad reporters leave all of us wondering about the quality of the reporter sitting in front of us.
Even so, I think I'm worried more about my class :c]
