On Mackinac Island, Michigan with the bishops and spouses of the Class of 2011 (bishops elected during 2010), for our annual voluntary continuing education get-together. I do engage serious work, but it’s at a relaxed pace, and we have lots of fun. Pastoral ministry, whether at a parish or diocesan level, is a lonely job. There are few, if any, peer relationships on a day-to-day basis. Time like this week is invaluable for mental and spiritual health.
