Back in the saddle. Up and out to arrive at the Cathedral/Office complex around 9am. Got ready to preside and preach at the Diocesan Council Mass (we did a votive “For All Baptized Christians”). Several short exchanges with various people as the clock ticked toward 10. Presided at the regular August (third of four annual) Council meeting. Three short impromptu meetings afterward. When the dust all cleared, I refined and printed the text of tomorrow’s homily at St Mary’s, Robinson. Home (via Hardee’s) around 2:30. Ate my lunch and tried to relax, aware that I feel like I’m “coming down with something.” (How’s that for timing?) Left for Robinson at 5, and pulled in at the Best Western around 8:15 . Lots of internet chores to attend to before bedtime.
