The Golden Age of the Newman Center

A friend sent me this vintage photo from April of 1965.  You will see me in there as a participant in a religious retreat held by the Dominican Priests from the Newman Center at UNM.  The retreat was held at the Benedictine Monastery in Pecos, NM.  Benedictines and Dominicans getting along.  Not so much like what has happened recently to the Newman center which was smacked down by the dogma of Archbishop Sheehan.  Right wing dogma that is.  Notice the dog in the picture.  I guess his going to the left wasn't good in the long run for the community that loved the Newman Center of old.

My karma ran over their dogma.
