Friday (St Martin of Tours)

  • Usual AM routine. MP in the cathedral.
  • Did the usual homiletical surgery on an old text for Proper 29 (Christ the King), to be delivered at St Michael’s, O’Fallon, freshening it up for contemporary use.
  • Finally read and responded the autumnal Ember Day letters our postulants, candidates, and transitional deacons sent me in September. What a great group of upcoming ordinands we have.
  • Resumed prep work for my trip to the Diocese of Mississippi next week.
  • Lunch with Fr Dave Wells, one of our recent ordinands in a status I call “ready reserve,” where he can be deployed to a variety of situations on a supply and short-term basis.
  • Participated in a tw0-hour conference call with a Nashotah House committee in connection with our accreditation review self-study. This will be a monthly gig for a while.
  • Back to work on my Mississippi prep. Finished this particular phase of the project.
  • Attended to some routine December personal planning chores.
  • Spent a period of silent prayer in front of the Blessed Sacrament before reading the evening office.
