Presenting to the Pope?

Not exactly, but I did get to meet him in person.  Last week I attended the best conference of my life.  It was held in Rome, at the Pontifical Gregorian University, and the theme was "Values and Rules for a New Model of Development.

Highlights were, on Thursday evening, a private tour of the Sistine Chapel, and then an audience with the Pope on Saturday morning, during which the conference speakers, including myself, got to meet him personally.  I had only met him once before, twenty-three years ago as an undergraduate when he gave a lecture at my university (he didn't remember me…).

More details on the conference, including a brief video of the audience with the Pope, and a video of my own presentation, are posted on my other blog, on Catholic Business ethics.
