The day began with Mass at 6:30 a.m. followed by an expected request for the Sacrament of Penance, which is, of course, always a good way to begin the day. Actually, that's two days in a row now that that has happened...I hope it keeps up.
The rest of the day - barring any other unforeseen happenings - looks as follows:
10:08 a.m. - Class with my sophomores, the topic of which is yet to be determined.
11:00 a.m. - Class with my juniors, continuing our discussions on Baptism
12:00 p.m. - Lunch
1:00 p.m. - Meeting with a man to discuss the possibility of electrifying our bells (we have three real bells in the tower named Mary, Gabriel and Aloysius)
2:00 p.m. - Meeting with a parishioner
4:00 p.m. - Meeting with a couple for a wedding
5:30 p.m. - Music boosters association fish fry
7:00 p.m. - Stations of the Cross followed by Benediction
8:30 p.m. - Confessions for a De Colores retreat twenty minutes away from the parish
I'm particularly intrigued about the bells. Being rather frightened of heights, I have not been in the bell tower, although I very much want to climb up there today to have a look around. I very well might... And if I don't I'll send a camera up with whoever climbs the fifty-feet vertical ladder.
I humbly ask your prayers for continued energy and stamina...
