Friday (St Ambrose)

Out of retreat now, and back in the saddle. My personal circumstances may dictate a rather unorthodox style, but the formula is pretty classic: pray … read … reflect … write … repeat. And, perhaps, sleep a tad more than usual. As such things go, I would say that is “worked.”

As for today:

  • Task planning over breakfast.
  • Morning Prayer with Brenda.
  • Edited, refined, printed (placing the hard copy in my car), and scheduled for posting this Sunday’s homily (St Bartholomew’s, Granite City).
  • Reached out by email to a priest whose parish I am visiting soon.
  • Wrote an email (in Spanish) to the Bishop of Peru, letting him know he’ll shortly be receiving a modest financial contribution from the Diocese of Springfield.
  • Lunch from Pizza Hut, eaten at home.
  • Reached out by phone and email regarding a pastoral matter.
  • Wrote and posted (on the website) my article for the next edition of the Springfield Current.
  • Took a brisk 75-minute walk. (With temps in the mid-20s, it was never going to be anything but brisk!).
  • Friday prayer: Lectio divina on tomorrow OT reading from the daily office lectionary.
  • Evening Prayer with Brenda.
  • Mid-evening, made a start on adapting the current Roman Catholic authorized rite for exorcism for use in the Diocese of Springfield. This will be a bit of a project.
