Congratulations to Father Donald Webber C.P. who was elected Provincial of Holy Cross Province last Thursday. A man of many talents, he edited the English translation of the Letters of Saint Paul of the Cross with Brother Laurence Finn C.P. There aren’t many photographs of Father Don available, as he is usually on the other side of the camera! You can just about see him here at the Thanksgiving Mass in Saints John and Paul (Rome) after the Canonisation of Saint Charles of Mount Argus. He’s the one in a black habit standing against the pillar on the left side of the picture, lining up a photograph.
Father Don, who was based at the Provincial Office in Chicago for the last few years, sent me an e-mail about two weeks ago in which he wrote: Our Chapter is next week, so I’m looking to “retire” somewhere in the Province. -Maybe a retreat center; I really like that ministry. But the other members of the Province had a different idea for his new ministry. I’m sure he will do a fine job. Keep him in your prayers.
