Good Friday

  • Devotions in the cathedral, some prayer time in front of the Most Blessed Sacrament on the Altar of Repose, and Morning Prayer in the nave.
  • Produced and printed the service leaflets for my brother’s funeral next week in the Chicago area.
  • Refined and printed my homily for Easter (Vigil and Sunday morning).
  • Walked the Stations of the Cross as a member of the congregation in the cathedral at 12:15.
  • (Went home for the rest of the afternoon.)
  • Performed a chore having to do with the ordination process.
  • Fine-tuned the fourth of my five retreat addresses in the Diocese of Albany in mid-April.
  • Worked a bit on my homily for Easter VII (May 12 at Christ the King, Normal).
  • Caught up on some email.
  • Took care of some routine personal organization chores.
  • About 5:15 I headed back to the cathedral-office complex: read Evening Prayer, then took part in a rehearsal for the Good Friday liturgy.
  • Presided (while the Provost preached) at the Proper Liturgy for Good Friday. It was done with dignity and grace.
