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.
