The Lazy Disciple is happy to participate in the initiative, and elects Fr. William Casey, CPM.
I have always admired soldiers, and greatly admired soldiers turned priests. To understand why, one need look no further than St. Ignatius Loyola, or Fr. Norman Weslin in our own day. There is something archetypically fulfilling in the journey from warrior to priest (the archetype of the warrior-priest is one, for magnificent exemplars of which the Church and the whole world have great need, especially now).
The radio man in me would like to hear more of Fr. Casey, whose simplicity and directness carry through, and carry home by way of his powerful and disciplined voice.
Father Bill Casey is a native of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and a 1979 graduate of Temple University. After graduating from college, he served as an officer in the U.S. Army. Upon leaving the Army, he entered the Congregation of the Fathers of Mercy. He studied Philosophy at Christendom College and Theology at Holy Apostles Seminary and was ordained to the priesthood in 1991. In 1997, Fr. Casey was elected the Superior General of the Congregation. Father attributes his call to the priesthood to the Mercy of God, his love for the study of Sacred Scripture, and his strong devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

A caveat to all would-be correspondents: If you do write, we can publish it. That does not mean we will, though. We are reasonable men.
