Learning more about Father Conrad Herda only intrigues my research more on this priest who served in Texas, specifically at the towns of Nazareth and Lindsay. He was a priest assigned from Subiaco Abbey in Arkansas. I’m thankful to Doris Miller for translating his German letters, so I can ascertain more about him and share this research in a scholarly journal.
In a recent letter translation, Father Conrad at one point in his life commented that he “…. fasts like donkey.” I have no idea what that means, but the statement proves he had a sense of humor.
