Author Ron Hansen Ordained As Deacon

English professor Ron Hansen ordained as deacon - News

If you haven't heard of him, Ron Hansen is a very overt Catholic novelist. I firest encountered him in his book Mariette In Ecstasy which I had to read for a course with Michael W. Higgins back my first term here in school in Spring of '98. It is an excellent retelling of the life of St. Terese de Lisieux. It is amazing, and unlike most of his other stories is not in some way a wastern. All that I have read of his writings is excellent.
