I want to commend Catholic Theological Union on the magnificent choice of Dr. Barbara Reid to serve as the next president. I have had the privilege of working with Dr. Reid as senior administrative colleague while in Chicago, and she has served as a member of the Board of Directors for the Association of Theological Schools. This is a timely appointment. Dr. Reid is the right leader to guide CTU in this time of significant change in theological education. She is an embodiment of the mission of CTU. I cannot think of a better person to guide CTU into its future. CTU is the light that all religious orders need.
