The snow storm that hit Milwaukee yesterday has passed and I'm heading south--to Barrington, Illinois. Not too far south so no one needs to get envious. Bellarmine Jesuit Retreat House where I'll be giving a retreat was started in 1946 and is 35 miles north of Chicago. Eighty men are scheduled to make the "Spiritual Exercises." We begin this evening and end at noon on Sunday. It's a short retreat, really a glorified day of recollection, but a great way to start the new year.
