Augmented my scheduled visit to St Bartholomew’s, Granite City with an unscheduled appearance at St Thomas’, Glen Carbon given that Fr Tony Clavier, who serves both missions, was on doctor-ordered rest for a bronchial infection. Left home at 6:45, got back at 12:45. Had a good hard nap. Then, channeling the Puritan forebears I must surely have somewhere, I got back to work, processing emails, adding some content to the diocesan website, and working on the “aspirational” liturgical customary for the diocese that is slowly taking shape. I promise I will take tomorrow completely off.
