Good Friday

  • At the cathedral/office complex at the usual hour, but I was alone among the usual denizens of the office today. We were officially “closed.”
  • Initial puttering in the cathedral nave and sacristy. Connie Lynn arrived shortly thereafter to begin preparations for tonight, so we did some consulting.
  • Morning Prayer in my office.
  • Aside from occasional trips to check on sacristy goings-on, I spent the rest of the morning, and part of the afternoon, working on a post for the covenant blog that is due soon.
  • I observed the prescribed fast today, so there was no lunch. But it still somehow seems right to go home and sip on a bottle of sparkling water while watching one of my recorded TV shows. Rituals are strong.
  • Responded to a stack of emails that had built up over the last couple of days.
  • Spent some time with my exegetical notes on the propers for the Fifth Sunday of Easter and charted a course toward a message and an outline of what will eventually become a homily at St George’s, Belleville.
  • Spent some devotional time in front of the Most Blessed Sacrament at the Altar of Repose.
  • Finished hand-writing notes to clergy and spouses with nodal events in April. (I had begun this last Saturday.)
  • Evening Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Got home around 5pm to rest a bit and change clothes. Then back with Brenda for our respective rehearsals.
  • Presided and preached at the Good Friday liturgy. Once again, attendance significantly up from last year. It all worked out quite well.
