|Maria Romine on the set of The Journey Home|
Maria is a very sweet person (except when she's driving and she encounters toll booths), an excellent actress, and a good friend. Her story will be well worth watching.
Then, this coming summer, The Journey Home will air an episode featuring me as Orestes Brownson, 19th Century American author and Catholic convert. I will be telling "my" journey (Brownson's journey) into the Catholic Church. Brownson is a fascinating man - America's John Henry Newman, in my opinion - and this will also make for a fascinating program. In addition, I will be portraying Orestes Brownson at this year's Portsmouth Institute Conference at Portsmouth Abbey School in June.
Follow this blog or sign up for my newsletter for reminders, which I'll pass along as we get closer.
I'm proud, then, of three things ...
- My role (by God's grace) in Maria's conversion.
- The fact that this will be my fifth appearance on The Journey Home
- The beard that I will have to grow or buy to portray Orestes Brownson. Once I have this beard, I'll easily get bookings as a Rutherford B. Hayes look-a-like! And there's a market for that. Maybe.
