A minor digression from our month celebrating Archbishop Sheen here at Reading Catholic. I just discovered (because remember, no one tells me anything, that my editor at The Catholic Post, Tom Dermody, wrote a song about Peoria that is featured in this great new YouTube video. In addition to being a kind and patient editor, and putting out the award-winning The Catholic Post every two weeks, he is a songwriter and video-maker! That’s what I call multi-faceted.
My husband and I have lived in the Peoria area for nearly 20 years, and yet I don’t think of us as “Peorians” even though we clearly are at this point. But I was surprised at how emotional I got watching the video and seeing all the great landmarks, people and nature that make up central Illinois.
Enjoy this! If you’re here in central Illinois, what are your favorite places?
