While on Mount Kilimanjaro I received an email from Paul Senz, a contributor to the National Catholic Register, among other publications. He had stumbled upon this blog before I started ascending and followed along day-by-day. Not knowing whether I’d summit or not, he reached out to me to see if I’d be willing to do an interview about my experiences as a priest on the mountain. I readily agreed.
Once stateside we communicated several times and lo and behold, on March 29th I received an email from a confrere in Rome. The interview hit the “press.” This was exciting news for me. After all, the National Catholic Register is a national publication with an international readership. Within the next couple of days I started receiving more and more emails from friends and acquaintances.
