Things to do in Milwaukee while waiting for a meeting...

A visit to Gesu Church on the campus of Marquette will probably not be as dramatic as mine was this past week. After climbing the wooden steps to the top I came face to face with a dead priest lying in an open coffin. Next to the coffin was a collage of sorts saying goodbye to Father Joe, evidently the priest who was lying in the coffin. No one else was around at the time. There was no kneeler by the coffin, but I did pause to say a prayer for the deceased father.

There is a great Catholic bookstore on W. Greenfield called Catholic Book and Gift that is well worth a visit.

I could spend an entire day just gazing at the art that adorns the Basilica of St. Josaphat's.

A great place for lunch is Joey Buona's on Water St. I ordered a sandwich for a very modest price and it was delivered with a large bowl of soup and homemade chips. Very tasty and what a deal! Great service there too!
