Rogation Wednesday (St Monnica)

  • A reasonably routine weekday morning … except I forgot my office key at home and had to go back an get it because nobody else was there yet. Of course, by the time I got back, people were there.
  • Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Consulted with the Archdeacon on a couple of ongoing issues.
  • Consulted with the Administrator on some of the details of some significant technology upgrades we’re in the midst of (new network copier/printer, more robust wifi, two new computers).
  • Prepared to preside and preach at the noon Mass.
  • Attended to some of the planning details of two upcoming ordinations.
  • Took a phone call from a prospective candidate for one of our vacant cures.
  • Spoke by phone with the Dean of Nashotah House on a couple of matters.
  • Began drafting my homily for this Sunday (West Frankfort and Harrisburg).
  • Celebrated the midday Mass, keeping the feast of St Monnica.
  • Lunch from La Bamba, eaten at home.
  • With various interruptions, continued working on this Sunday’s sermon.
  • Spent the last hour of my time in the office wrestling with software issues. Apparently, my music publishing software, which I rarely use, doesn’t play well with the latest version of MacOS. After discovering that the hard way, I purchased and began downloading the updated version of the software (what a racket), but didn’t quite finish a successful installation. This project was resumed in the evening.
  • Evening Prayer in the cathedral.
