Location: Wisconsin, United States

I am a convert to the Catholic Church after serving in ordained ministry for more than nine years in another denomination. I hold a bachelor's degree in history, a master's degree in historical theology, and another in systematic theology, and am currently working (very slowly) on my doctorate. I work in Christian Education and Formation and teach at the University level. I am blessed with a wonderful wife and eight great kids! When I'm not studying, reading, or blogging, I enjoy eating and drinking! Like Bilbo Baggins, I have been specializing in food for many years, and my table has a high reputation!

The New Orleans Saints have won the Super Bowl!

Now, I've never been a huge New Orleans fan. I've never had anything particular against the team -- they've just never really been on my radar.

BUT . . . my late father-in-law, Murphy Soirez, was born in Louisiana and was a Saints fan. Murphy lived to be 80 years old -- but didn't get to see this day. Heck, he didn't get to see the Saints ever do much of ANYTHING!

I jokingly told my kids that if the Saints DID win the Super Bowl, it would represent their grandfather's 1st miracle -- and that we would have a "Blessed Murphy" day on the anniversary of his death in his honor!

Now, we're really going to do it!

Congratulations to the New Orleans Saints -- and thanks Murphy -- I'm sure you had some of the best seats in the house!

Papa Z.
