Wow! I woke up each morning saying, “This isn’t Kansas!”  How did a boy from western Kansas end up presenting an academic paper at The Grandeur of Reason conference, just outside the Vatican?  The heart has reasons the mind knows not…  It was a great event.  I especially enjoyed meeting people for Italian coffee, and seeing the sights.  The title of my paper?  Metaphysics and the Moral Order.  There were five of us there from St Mary’s College. 

St Mary's contingent: Luke, Andrew, Rob, Bruce
