Studies in Rome
Here’s a bit more info. My bishop is sending me to finish the degree in Canon Law. He’s given me 2 years to do the work for a Juris Canonici Doctor–A Doctor of Canon Law. I got J.C.L./ Licentiate [“Masters”] 15 years ago from Catholic University in Wasthington D.C. The idea is that I get the Doctorate and then return to the Diocese of Bridgeport as Judicial Vicar/Officialis [the chief Judge/Canonical Officer] of the Diocese. The bishop assures me that I’m not too old to do it, and I’ve got to believe him. I fly out tomorrow to Milan, and then go to a place called Verbania, to a school to work on my very rusty Italian, then in September I head to Rome and matriculate and start classes at the Angelicum [the Dominican University in Rome] in the beginning of October. Below is an explanation, contact info, etc. If you’d like to try your hand at old-fashioned snail mail, now is your chance.
