Friends, I recently traveled to Annapolis, MD, at the request of the United States Naval Academy to address their sailors on topics of spiritual and pastoral importance. While on my visit, I toured the storied city, exploring its historical and religious legacy and commenting upon relevant theological topics.

It was a joy to appreciate the art and architecture of the Maryland State House. In some ways, the United States was born here; the Treaty of Paris that ended the Revolutionary War was ratified on this spot. This historic site reminds me of the buildings at Mundelein Seminary, where I served as Rector before my episcopal ordination.
