Periodically, I Want to Salute Special People in My Life


Jack Anderson never likes to have his picture taken so I only have this one clipped out of a group picture around 1968. Jack, who is now a resident of Nazareth Home, has been a good friend and loyal supporter of mine since my days at St. Meinrad Seminary - and remains so to this day. I try to go see him every week. 

I was about this old when I first met Jack, through a mutual friend - Mrs. Wilhelmine King. 

Jack gave me this ceramic priest when I was ordained a priest in 1970. I have  moved it with me throughout the last 46 years. This statue, like me, is a little beat up, but still standing. 

For his 80th birthday, I named the coffee shop that I had built at St. Meinrad Seminary after him. It is called "Jack's." It is a wonderful gathering place for seminarians, monks, staff members and guests.
