I just attended the annual meeting of the MSA at Mount Angel Abbey in Portland, Oregon. The long travel there and back was a bit tiring, but it was a beautiful place to have such a meeting, and there were a number of good talks. I particularly liked Fr. Andrew Apostoli’s presentation on the Mariology of Servant of God Fulton J. Sheen.
The MSA has gone through various phases since it began in 1949. Some people may have been turned off by some of the studies that came out in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s, but I can assure you that there is definitely a focus on orthodoxy at the MSA these days.
