Msgr. Kozar is featured in the picture above, top center, sharing a joyful moment with the Vincentian Fathers of the Syro-Malabar Catholic Church in southern India.
For anyone curious about CNEWA—one of the best-kept secrets of the Catholic Church!—or how I keep myself busy when I’m not blogging or hanging out at my parish, check out the video below.
