Well, the results are in at The Catholic Summer Reading Program, and my book Love in the Little Things: Tales of Family Life came in seventh overall.

Seventh! Can you believe that? And just look at the authors who finished ahead of me:

Pope Benedict XVI
G.K. Chesterton
Georges Bernanos
Evelyn Waugh
Fr. George Rutler
J.R.R. Tolkien

Should I demand a recount? Who are these guys anyway?

The number seven is symbolic of divine perfection.

The thought, of course, crossed my mind. But I preferred to have a real-life biblical scholar say it.

As the nuns used to say to us “heathens,” in the 1960′s, “Offer it up!”

Wow! That’s quite a crowd to be beat out by!

Congratulations Mr Aquilina!

Well, those other guys are pretty good, but there’s nothing like a good essay about someone in diapers.
