    Hi! I wanted to mention something I just figured out… The guy who got appointed Archbishop of Toronto a few weeks back, is the same guy who studied at UD and helped out at my old parish!

    He was a really good priest, very devout, offered Mass well, and gave good homilies. (One of them I still remember, about the woman at the well. And it’s been like 20 years, so there you go.) Also very prudent, and spoke lots of languages.

    So hopefully everything goes very well for Toronto!

    (It cracks me up, because our local media always covers anything connected to Dayton, and they haven’t connected the dots on this at all. I have to call them up.)

    I had limited time and didn’t get a chance to figure out the puzzle. I tried a few things, but nothing I tried worked. Curious what the solution is.
